Tag Day – Late August or early 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 band program. Today, between 500 & 600 band and orchestra students in grades 7-12 canvass the Sycamore Community Schools District during a 3 hour period on this Saturday morning. Along with the students, approximately 150 parent volunteers are needed to help throughout the event. All monies raised are deposited into SBOB’s general fund.
