MFMB Receives New Band Shield

The Mighty Falcon Marching Band uses a shield design as their official logo. It is incorporated into all of the official band apparel.

The  Band received a surprise donation from Mr. Jake Willis at the Band Banquet this year. Unknown to band members, Mr. Willis had spent the last several weeks working on a full size band shield.Band Shield

He started the project with a 4 X 8 sheet of medium-density fibreboard.  The lettering was cut out using a ShopBot at LCCC. Once all lettering was complete, days of sanding and priming were needed to prep the pieces.  After the pieces were ready Mr. Willis used three layers of paint to seal each separate piece. The pieces were placed on top of each other, glued into placed and then screwed into position. Final vinyl decals were added to finish the project.

The final project weighs over 40 pounds and stands over three feet tall. It can be found proudly on display in the band room at FHS!

Thank you to Mr. Willis for this wonderful donation!
