Service/Stewardship Projects

A hallmark of our Tiger Bands and the Band Scholars is our commitment to assorted Service/Stewardship Projects.

Windsor Gardens Project

During the 2007-2008 academic year, we began an ongoing relationship with the fine folks of the Windsor Gardens Retirement Center. Few offerings have been as meaningful to our work and efforts. Michael Gilkison took the original leadership role in our monthly visits to Windsor Gardens and helped to establish this great opportunity. We shall continue this special relationship during our May The Grrr... Be With You Performance Season.

Depending upon our schedule and performance obligations, we like to visit - interact with the fine folks of Windsor Gardens about once a month [some years, less-so].

I am tickled that we shall continue to explore and expand the possibilities of this relationship. This continues to represents an exciting opportunity for us - as we all learn and grow together

Fall Food Collection Project

This fall, as we have since 1993 - the beginning of the "modern era" of our Tiger Bands - we will be collecting a "food offering". The price of admission to our Fall Symphonic Band "Anniversary Concert" is canned or processed foodstuffs which we take to the A.M.E.N. House and they distribute to the less-fortunate members of our Georgetown-Scott County community. This is and has been a good project in the past and we consider it a privilege to continue it in the future.

Festival of the Horse Parade ~ Friends of the Library
Fire Prevention Week ~ Local Fire Department
Lady Tiger Classic ~ Habitat for Humanity
Phon-A-Thon ~ Georgetown College

Additionally, through performances and participation at several other key, local events - each year we are able to support notable charities and philanthropic organizations in a meaningful fashion. We consider it a privilege and a pleasure to be involved in these events.
