P-T Band Boosters receives OK Community Cares grant

Perkins-Tryon Band Boosters received a $1,000 grant from OK Community Cares to help purchase a box trailer.

The purchase of a box trailer will allow the Perkins-Tryon Midnight Regimen to haul all instruments, uniforms and equipment to contests and football games.

“Our band program is growing and is projected to double in size over the next one to two years,” said Julia Helm, Perkins-Tryon Band Boosters Fundraising Chair. “We are very proud of our kids and all that they have accomplished. They were second at state in 1A-4A bands, first place in the Stillwater Christmas Parade of Lights and received straight superior ratings during marching and concert season at state contests. As a result, they won a 2022-2023 sweepstakes award.”
