// Volunteers

It takes many people to keep a band like Westland's Marching Courgars going. Our volunteers help us keep the cost of participating in marching band down. In fact, Westland Marching Band has the lowest yearly fees of any marching band in this area.

People are needed to help feed the kids, chaperone on the buses to competitions and performances, clean and fix the uniforms, push equipment onto the field during performances and much more. One of our important volunteer activities is working Westland Marching Band Annual Christmas Tree stand. The Band Boosters run the Tree stand between Thankgiving and Christmas. The funds gained from this major event allows the boosters to assist with many aspects of the band. In fact, a half of the total expenses necessary to run the Westland Marching Cougars are funded through the profits of this event.


We ask that everyone does their part so that the volunteering does not fall onto the shoulders of a few.


Volunteer opportunities will be posted onto the Charms Calendar.
