Alternate Band Uniform T-Shirt

A required part of the band uniform is the long-sleeved brown t-shirt worn under the uniform jacket.  While nice to wear on cool nights, these shirts can be uncomfortable in the hot weather.  This year, band students may choose to purchase a short-sleeved white T-shirt with WHEU logo to wear instead of the brown shirt.  A sample of this shirt is hanging in the band room.  The cost of this shirt is $10.

A WHEUPA volunteer will be in the band room on Monday night Oct 27th, prior to and at the end of practice, to sell these T-shirts.  Supplies are limited and will be sold on first-come, first served basis.  Cash or check, payable to WHEUPA, are accepted.  Exact change is greatly appreciated.
