Last chance to see WildBand perform its award-winning METAL halftime show during the Oak Ridge football playoff game at Blankenship Field on Friday, November 3. WildBand Director Michael Spirko said, “We appreciate how the Oak Ridge and the East Tennessee community support WildBand so it can continue with the same success, rigor and standards of excellence.”

Fresh fruit from Florida, boxed and delivered free by band members, has become a winter holiday tradition at Oak Ridge High School. You can select fresh oranges, grapefruits and apples between now and November 3. Then, choose free delivery or online ordering for an additional shipping fee.

Proceeds from the fruit sale benefit the ongoing band program. Needs range from keeping band trucks and trailers running to transport band gear, to uniform upkeep, to apparel and flags for color guard that perform with the band during halftime shows. Band Boosters also use proceeds for support needs such as student snacks and meals during long events and away games.

You may order online through the WildBand website, www.wildband.org, or through a current WildBand student. To order via the website with a credit card or check, click on the Fruit Sale icon to enter the online store. Order from a band member by November 3 to receive items delivered free in December for the holidays. For more information or questions about ordering, contact Tonya Jamois, fruit sale coordinator, at wildbandfruitsale@gmail.com.
