The Lamar Consolidated Band Booster Club is a non-profit organization providing support for the Mustang Band through volunteer service and financial assistance.
To achieve this goal, it takes many dedicated volunteers all working together as a team throughout the year. The help of each band member’s family is needed to provide the necessary support for a successful band program. Financial assistance is needed to cover items not typically included in the Lamar Consolidated ISD budget. Each year (usually in May), the Booster Club approves a budget which helps support such important items as:
- Clinicians who train the students in the finer details of using their instrument and assist in improving the band’s marching and concert skills
- Fees associated with the drill writing
- Entry fees to contests
- Transportation to contests
- Purchase of special music
- Maintenance of equipment
- Purchase of new equipment
- An End-of-the-Year Celebration Banquet
