Regarding Meet the Rebel Regiment Night – see this from the booster club:
Meet the RR is a great way for us to show the community all of the hard work that both bands have put in this season! Invite your family and friends to this free event. Please consider bringing a donation of a case of water bottles. There will be a drop off for water at the upper gate next to the band field. We will have t-shirts and merchandise for sale, basket raffles, and dessert food trucks! We will also be selling bricks from the old band room. For $25 you can buy a piece of RR history.
