Shop with Scrip
Fundraising for your student account
Coordinators: Gina and Greg Fornefeld,
Scrip is a nationally recognized gift card program featuring local and national retailers. These are the same gift cards that you buy at the store. Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and dining out. When you purchase scrip cards, a percentage of your purchase price will go into your child's band account. It is a good way to raise funds for your student to help reduce band fees. Continue reading to find out how to start your Scrip account.

Your next year’s band fees cost you NOTHING out of pocket!
Well, that’s what it can be by working only 6-8 games at Lucas Oil Stadium!!!
You only have to work half the remaining dates and…POOF!!! Your out of pocket band cost is GONE!
(Amounts from Lucas Oil stadium go into your Student’s account and can be used for appropriate Marching Band, Guard, Winter Percussion, Winter Guard, Band and other related fees.)
Why pay band fees out of your own pocket?
Student account earnings update…
Last year we have had over 40 adults/students participating in the Lucas Oil Stadium fund raising.
Everyone who worked added an average of $80.00 to their student account each time they worked.
Working at LOS provided over $15,000 of funding for student accounts.
10 Student accounts were credited with enough to completely cover their marching band fees with some of them having extra for other fees.
Nobody had to go door to door to sell anything to friends/neighbors
People came to us to buy items
We worked hard and had fun
Typical game day…
Meet 5 hours before game starts
Arrive at LOS and sign in
Inventory and setup
Open stand 2 hours before game starts
Sell, have fun, sell, have fun
(repeat till game ends)

|Cares Program Dates for RCG. Need attached Slip for Oct. Also purchase SCRIP cards for extra fundraising by this Monday evening!
- October 1st-3rd
- November 19th-21st
- December 17th-19th
The RCG is signed up to participate in the new Marsh Cares Program. The program will give back to the band 5% of all qualifying purchases made over a three day period once a month. Our first event is next Thursday, October 1st, through Saturday, October 3rd. When you go shopping on any of those days, you will need to bring along a Marsh Cares Identification Slip and give it to the cashier upon check out. Packets of five identification slips were passed out to all RCG members as they were leaving school last night at the end of practice. Please feel free to pass them out to friends and family to help in our fundraising effort. If your student didn't bring any slips home, you can either print them yourself by clicking on the below link or you can have your student see Mrs. Grosso for some.
Want to earn 5% back to your student's band account while helping the band earn their 5% as mentioned above? Marsh is one of the SCRIP program participants, so you can earn 5% back by using one of their gift cards to make your grocery purchases. Gina Fornefeld is opening up a special SCRIP card purchase for MARSH ONLY from now through 9 p.m., Monday, September 28th. Please make your Marsh SCRIP card purchase as you normally would on-line and then e-mail Gina at
so that she knows that you are purchasing Marsh cards for this event. This will ensure that you get your cards from her prior to our first shopping day on Thursday, October 1st.
Save the Date: Our upcoming Marsh Cares Program shopping dates are October 1st - 3rd, November 19th-21st and December 17th-19th.
Please contact Julie Grosso if you have any questions about this program.

Portrait Day—October 2, 2015
Northcraft Photo is proud to be your official Portrait Photographers again this year! We are also happy to announce we have the same pre-order pricing for three years in a row!!!!! This is great news for you - make sure you take advantage of this Pre-Order Special!
We will take formal portraits (individuals, section photos, and entire band photo) for the Royal Command and Guard on Friday, October 2nd. We ask that ALL marching band and color guard members have their picture taken so we can create a full band composite for display.
The schedule is as follows: All RCG members will report (in full uniform) to Leonard Auditorium for the large group portrait after performing pre-game show. Please stay in your sections to have your section photo and individual photos taken. Please stay in uniform until the all clear for your section is given to ensure complete group photos are taken.
Parents - order forms are attached to this article. By PRE-ORDERING, you will save money. Portrait Packages and individual portraits will be available online, but will be a bit more expensive as our costs are increased when orders are placed on-line and you will also be charged shipping by ordering on-line.
Please have your RCG member bring their order forms with them on Portrait Day October 2nd. Order forms must be received on portrait day to receive the discount. Portraits will be delivered to the RCG members on or before October 21st.
For questions – please email

We would like to thank Rachelle Galvin and Greg Moore for co-chairing a very successful Royal Invitational. Everything ran smooth and we heard many compliments from all areas. Thank you to all the committee chairpersons. Your organizational and leadership efforts for each area are truly extraordinary. Lastly, thank you to all the volunteers. As the single largest fundraiser we do each year, we could not do it without your help. With over 200 volunteer time slots needing filled, it takes all the parents and families volunteering to complete such a large task. As we close the 2015 Royal Invitational one final thank you to all who helped and we look forward to celebrating the 10th Royal Invitational in 2016!
