WELCOME TO THE CENTERVILLE BAND AND THE BAND BOOSTERS!
The philosophy of the Centerville Band Boosters Association is to act as a support group for the entire band program. This included the Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Marching Band and all band ensembles as outlined in the band handbook.
The Centerville Band Boosters Association was formed to provide moral and financial support to all the Centerville High School Bands. The membership is open to all parents of band members. There are monthly board meetings, which are open to all members, and general meetings held four times a year, as required by the Constitution and By-Laws.
The Boosters, in cooperation with the band students, sponsor numerous fund raising events each year, some of which include calendar sales, poinsettia sales, spring flower sales, etc. We also work to partner with local businesses to help sponsor the CBB with both monetary and in-kind donations. The money from these activities provide for the following:
The boosters also provided a positive and supportive environment at all performance events, competitive or otherwise, in recognition of the hard work not just of our students, but for all hard working groups.
