The John Tyler High School Big Blue Band will perform their second annual March-A-Thon fundraising event from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

The band will march through neighborhood streets, stopping at homes to perform lawn concerts. Parents, neighbors and the community along the route who pledge $100 will receive a three-song performance, $75 will receive a two-song performance and $50 will receive a one-song performance.

There are three different parade routes. The first leg will be in the Pine Brook addition behind John Tyler High School and will travel down Brazos Blvd, Trinity Drive and Neches Drive. The second leg will travel down Silver Creek Drive, Pine Haven Road, Club Lake Drive, Fair Lawn Drive and Orr Drive. The third leg includes Wolford Avenue, Cecil Avenue, Breckenridge Street, Northridge Drive and 29th Street.

For more information or to make a donation, contact Larry D. Wade Jr., director of bands, or Dale L. Faulks, assistant director, at 903.262.2887 or emaillarry.wade@tylerisd.org or dale.faulks@tylerisd.org.

Checks should be made payable to the John Tyler Band Parent Organization, a nonprofit organization that oversees a wide variety of responsibilities from funding various band ventures to providing water and supplies at performances.  The organization makes sure the students are well fed, well protected, and well supported.
