The Glenelg High School Band and Marching Unit participate in several events each year. They win many awards, and the kids really enjoy their participation.
To continue, the groups needs our support, and one of the ways you can help is to purchase entertainment books from a band or marching unit member. The books cost $35 and offer you many coupons for dinners, crafts, dry-cleaning, and other services. You'll use the book more than you think, and it will pay for itself in no time.
This year you can buy books for North or South Baltimore or for the Washington area. They make great holiday gifts.
If you don't know a student at Glenelg High, contact Kathy Weber at 410-531-6494 or Terry Newsome at 410-988-9163.
