Help Support 
Hudsonville Marching Band

Many people might not know, but Hudsonville Marching Band, Winter Guard & Winter Drumline is actually funded by the students, not the band boosters!  There is a fee to participate in these programs and the fees are used to pay for things like the music, show design, color guard flags & costumes, props, hotel stay (at state).. etc.  

This year our Marching Band students are having two fundraisers to try and raise money for new stadium jackets.  The current stadium jackets  are 20+ years old and have seen better days.  The students have a goal to raise $11,770 by the end of band camp so we can order and have their new jackets in time for their first football game.   

The two fundraisers the marching band is doing this year are:

March-a-thon

All 107 marching band students are currently hitting the pavement trying to earn pledges for their first ever march-a-thon.  The March-a-thon will be held during band camp (August 5th - 9th) to bring awareness of how many hours these students put into their show.  During their one week at band camp, these students will of marched and practiced for 44 HOURS!!  
Pledges are due the Wednesday of band camp.

Can Drive

Another fundraiser the marching band students will be doing this year during band camp is having a can drive!  This will be a competition between the sections.   If you have any cans/bottles you would like to donate to Hudsonville Marching Band, please let any marching band family know or if you would like to see what the students are doing during band camp, please feel free to swing on by with them as we will have a collection area for them.


** If you are a business or know of a business that would like to make a donation to help support this great group of kids, we have started a sponsorship program!  To learn more about our sponsorship program, please click here and if you have any questions regarding it or would like to become a sponsor, please contact Mike Meengs at mmeengs@yahoo.com.


THANK YOU for all your support and please mark down on your calendar to come watch the bands post band camp performance on August 15th @ 7:00 pm at the Freshman Campus!  This will be the first time the 2019-2020 Marching Band will perform their show for the community!  We would love to have you there and fill the stands!

What is Hudsonville Band Boosters? Hudsonville Band Boosters is a non-profit group comprised mostly of band parents (6th–12th grade) and our band directors. Our goal is to provide the support and resources needed to build & sustain a nationally recognized band program. 

The Boosters meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month to discuss issues relating to the band programs including budget & fundraisers, upcoming concerts, trips, updates from the band directors and more.

All parents of band students, past band students or anyone that would like to help Hudsonville Bands are welcome and encouraged to attend.
