    • Great gift item, who doesn’t love popcorn?
  • All students (Marching, Jazz, Concert) should participate in this fundraiser, as it goes to the band booster general fund
  • If supporters want to donate but don’t want to buy popcorn, they can make out a check to the SME Band Boosters and send to the school, or venmo @smebandboosters-2
