Stop complaining and help

I just wanted to say thank you for acknowledging the Nevada Union Marching Band and its need for new uniforms. I am a 2003 graduate of NU and I spent all four years in Prep/Marching Band.

Mr. Carter came (I think my sophomore year) and really started up the marching band again. We had to scrounge up whatever we could for our uniforms because of lack of money. That’s OK, because we looked hot.

Now when I go to watch football games, I get to observe the band from the stands. All I hear is mean comments from the viewers about how crummy and shabby the band looks, and how they should really go buy the nice uniforms (like all the other schools). Well, you all try to buy new uniforms with the band’s budget.

If you want the band to look good, stop complaining and do something about it. Help these kids out. I know that I worked really hard, and I’m sure they all do, too.
