MOTK T-Shirts available!
Andy and Jody have put together a terrific theme shirt for MOTK (See Attached) that will feature a design reminiscent of Halloween but specific to the Coven.. The T-Shirt is black and the artwork will come in two colors. The first color is very close to the purple of the color guard uniforms and the second color is a luminescent (glow in the dark) green. The shirt will have the MOTK date and a list of attending bands on the back. This product is the result of a collaboration of the Southington Band Backers and the Southington Athletic Shop.
We will begin taking preorders at a cost of $20 per shirt at the following times: Weds, 10/7 5:45pm-6:45pm & Fri, 10/9 4:15pm-5:15pm

Band Backer Legacy Supporter Program: Once a Band Backer always a Band Backer
As someone who believes that a quality music program is something we need to preserve and continue to strengthen I thought what better community to reach out to then former Southington Band Backers and their families! You know firsthand what Southington's music program has done for your children. You know how lucky we are to have such a dedicated group of Music Educators in our town. You know that the Southington Band Backer organization's purpose is to strengthen and support the music programs in our schools. Your children may have moved on to bigger things but it's important to remember how they got there. With that spirit in mind we have a new opportunity for past Band Backers and their family's to continue to support and strengthen the Southington Music program for years to come. With an annual donation to the Southington Band Backers, a 501c3 charity, you will be listed as a Band Backer Legacy Supporter in the Music of the Knight Program Guide and receive 2 MOTK tickets as our thank you. You may choose from three Support levels. Bronze Level $100, Silver Level $200, and Gold Level $300. You know how important these programs are; please consider being a part of the sound for as long as you can. For more information or to pledge your support please contact Erik Semmel at email@example.com. Your charitable pledge of support will be billed to you automatically in July just before the marching band season begins.
Following the lead of many other organizations and teams at the high school we have designed a lawn sign. This sign will allow you, your family, and neighbors the ability to show their support for the Marching Band. Here is the design we have come up with:
These are two sided 18 X 24 inch signs and cost $20 each. If you are still looking to purchase one, contact Tisha and Eric Semmel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
