Boosters schedule garage sale to support Vicksburg High band

It takes far more than sheets of music and skilled musicians to put together and operate a high school band. It takes plenty of support and money.

Saturday, boosters of the Vicksburg High School band will seek the community’s support as they host a garage sale to raise funds for their program.

A garage sale will begin at 6 a.m. at the City Pavilion next to City Pool, 100 Army Navy Drive.

Due to COVID-19, booster club president Sheffie Robinson said the club has not been able to hold their regularly scheduled fundraisers, leading them to schedule the garage sale instead.

Robinson said the monies raised during Saturday’s garage sale will be used to support the band program, but that no specific project has been identified for the funds.

Assistant band director Vickie Baker said items for the fundraiser have already been collected and include furniture, name brand clothing, baby items, shoes, jewelry, purses, electronics, bed linens, and plus sizes for both men and women.

“We will have all sorts of items,” Baker said, adding that early birds are discouraged. In light of the pandemic, Baker said, social distancing will be practiced and everyone is required to wear a mask.

The booster club will also be selling sausage dogs, chips and drinks during the garage sale.
