"This will be our reply to violence (in our world): to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before."
Band Field Completed
A special thanks to Geneva Rock and Sunroc companies for their huge donation in doing a complete renovation of our practice field south of the school. They have taken out all the sod, brought in fill and leveled and graded our field. The ASD and AFHS has installed fencing as well as moved the sprinkler boxes that were in the middle of the field. All of this will result in a much improved and safer rehearsal area for our students. Words cannot fully express our gratitude for those companies and individuals who have gone the extra mile in helping our program.

AF Band Student Financial Assistance Needed
Because of the economic hard times we are going through some AF band students are having a very difficult time staying current with their band and trip fees. Many students have been working hard on our fundraisers but because of various circumstances have found themselves unable to fully pay their fees. We have received a few donations from individuals and businesses that have helped the situation but are now asking for further help from anyone willing to make a tax deductible donation through the Alpine Foundation. Go to the fundraising page of the band website www.afbands.org and click on the donate button and make whatever donation you are willing to make. Make sure that you designate that your donation goes to the AF Bands student scholarship fund. Students receiving assistance will be asked to provide service hours to the band to help pay back their scholarship. Thanks for your consideration of this request and feel free to spread this request to friends who may be able to assist in providing this amazing AF Band opportunity to all our students.
