The Mighty Falcon Marching Band is currently raising funds for its Firelands Band Capital Campaign. The Firelands High School Band program has grown exponentially over the past decade. Due to this growth, we are in need of updating many of the facilities for the band program. Unfortunately there is not enough money in the school budgets to cover many of the capital campaigns that are needed for the band program. We are in need of larger bleachers for our marching band at the football games which will cost $15,000, and we are in need of better storage in the band room which will cost somewhere around $25,000. Altogether we will need around $40,000 to bring our facilities up to date and make them large enough for the students we have.

Please following this link to our Go Fund Me page if you would like to donate.

The Friends of Firelands will be hosting its annual Steak Fry on Saturday, March 4th at German’s Villa. Tickets are available at every school building or at the door (while supplies last).
