The Mighty Tiger Band Boosters will hold their annual spaghetti dinner on Sunday, Feb. 9, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the middle school cafeteria at 2601 B St. in Floresville. Tickets are available from any middle or high school band student.

What does it take to have an award-winning band? The band needs talented students and dedicated band directors. However, there is a group that works behind the scenes, the band parents. The Mighty Tiger Band Boosters is an organization of parents who actively support the band, which allows the students and directors to focus on the music.

Parents built the “snowflake” on which the band marched during its 2013 show, and a crew of 20 set up and dismantled the prop during all football games and competitions. They practiced in order to ensure that this could be done in two minutes. Approximately 20 other parents also assisted in moving percussion equipment and distributing water to the band.

Ensuring that band- members eat and stay healthy is a priority. The boosters provide meals before every home game. This year parents met at 5 a.m. two Saturdays in a row in order to cook breakfast for the students before competition to ensure that all students ate a healthy meal.

Boosters also help purchase equipment that would not otherwise be available from the school budgets. For instance, this year the boosters purchased a keyboard for the high school. The boosters are always willing to pay to repair damaged equipment, often making a trip to purchase supplies on the day of a competition when something unexpectedly breaks.

Raising money for both the high school and middle school bands is the primary purpose of the boosters. They operate the concession stand for all home games and several additional games held in Eschenburg Field.
