      • The Concert Band is a group of 45 professional musicians whose music inspires patriotism, connects communities with military service members and honors our country’s veterans.


    • Registration is currently closed to new participants for the Rose Parade trip to Pasadena. We are starting a waitlist in anticipation of having some spots to fill. If anyone would like to be added to the waitlist contact Music Travel & they will make sure the request is noted.
    • So far, the fundraising has eliminated the last two payments of the trip, so $500 should have been credited to your marcher’s account. We are continuing to work on fundraising for the next payment of $250, but we need your help. There are "Dine to Donate" nights planned at a variety of restaurants that you can attend. We still need help following up with businesses that we have contacted in the past.
    • If you have paid in full & the fundraising payments put you over the total fees due, you have options:
      • You could ask to have the overpayment placed in a scholarship fund for less fortunate students working towards paying for the trip
      • After the trip has occurred, if you paid for the trip with money you earned from fundraising opportunities, the overage will be placed in your child’s PA account (the money cannot be refunded in cash)
      • Or, after the trip has occurred, if you have paid cash for the trip you will receive a refund of the overpayment from the Lawrence Township School Foundation, providing your quota accounts are paid in full.
    • Text to Donate: Text MPLT to 72727 or click here to donate to the Pride to Pasadena Campaign!
