Tag Day – September: Tag Day is a door to door solicitation of the Sycamore Community School District by the students, grades 7 – 12, enrolled in the district’s Instrumental Music Program. Over 50 years ago members of the Sycamore Band started to collect funds to help supplement the needs of the program. Now all the band and orchestra students help reach more locations on the day than ever before. About 150 parent volunteers are needed to help throughout the event. All monies raised are deposited into SBOB’s general fund.
Craft Show – November: The Sycamore Band and Orchestra Boosters Sponsor a Craft Show each year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The event serves many purposes; a performance venue for the bands in the district grades 7 - 12 and the 5-8 Select Orchestras; a wide variety of home made crafters will be on display for purchase; and as a fundraiser for the Sycamore Band and Orchestra Boosters. Monies made from the Craft Show come from the vendors who “purchase” booth space to display their products. The last few years we average almost 200 Vendors. ENTRANCE TO THE SHOW IS FREE FOR EVERYONE. SBOB will also be offering a bake sale, raffle and snacks through out the day. About 60 parent volunteers are needed to help throughout the event. The craft show was started in the late 90’s. All monies raised are deposited into SBOB’s general fund.
Flower Sale – Jan/February: Participants raved about how GREAT the plants were. Since many of us already purchase plants and flowers for our home each year, you can now purchase these from SBOB and pick them up in one central and convenient location. You will receive high quality plants raised by one of SW Ohio’s leading growers, Fred C Koch Greenhouses, at prices comparable to leading home building supply stores. These plants are the caliber usually sold to area landscapers and municipalities who demand high quality goods. PLUS, SBOB AND THE INDIVIDUAL SELLER WILL SHARE IN THE PROFITS. THAT’S RIGHT…. Just be sure your son or daughter puts their name on the order form and 20%(increased starting with the 2010 sale) of the orders they collect will be deposited in their student account; the balance goes into SBOB’s general fund.
Pancake Day – March: Pancake Day stared back in 1962 and has grown into part of the Sycamore Fine Arts Festival. We invite you, your friends, and relatives to partake in the scrumptious pancake meal while you listen to performances of the district’s bands and orchestras. There is a cost for eating breakfast, but the Pancake seconds are free! There is no charge for listening to groups performing or for attending the Art Show. About 130 parent volunteers are needed to help throughout the event. All monies raised are deposited into SBOB’s general fund.
Scrip – ALL YEAR: The Great Lakes Scrip program is a great way to accumulate funds to pay for any high school music program expenses. Great Lakes Scrip offers gift cards that can be used at hundreds of stores, restaurants, gas stations and hotels nationwide. Each card is sold at a discount ranging from 1.5-40%; you pay the face value of the gift card, and the amount of the discount is credited to your child’s Student Account. You also have the option of donating the monies to SBOB’s general fund. The program is open to instrumental music program students in grades 7-12, and it couldn’t be easier! No order is too large or too small, and Scrip cards make great gifts!
