Homecoming Parade Entry 09/27/19
The Golden Eagle Band will proudly march down Belt Line to perform in one of Richardson High School’s grandest traditions, the Homecoming Parade. This event occurs at the end of the school day on Homecoming Friday. The way that the organizers handle the “entry fee” for the Homecoming Parade is fantastic! Rather than collecting money for the entry fee, each band member is expected to donate one pack of underwear/socks, which will be collected and donated to the Clothes Closet, a local charity serving the needs of the area. All donations are accepted but 4t-12/14 underwear and boys/girls socks (non adult) is preferred. There will be a collection area in the front of the band hall for each student to turn in his/her package of underwear. The package should be marked with the student’s name so that we can account for who has already turned in their contribution. This is a great charity and I expect the band to be the single greatest contributor!
