Burlington Junior Redcoats Parent Support Group
The Junior Redcoat Parent Support Group (JRPSG), has evolved from a group of parents wanting to assist the director and support their band members, to an established part of the Junior Redcoats. We now have an enthusiastic group of dedicated parents committed to the continuation and growth of the Junior Redcoat Band.
As with all volunteer organizations, the more volunteers, the better the organization. More people means more ideas and a lighter load for each individual.
The Chairperson oversees all the activities and affairs of the Parent Support Group. They are responsible for organizing and planning several meetings throughout the year including our Annual Mandatory Parents Meeting. The Chairperson communicates with the Musical Director on a regular basis. The Chairperson currently acts as a liaison between The Junior Redcoats and The Burlington Teen Tour Band. The Chairperson is also responsible for promoting the band through various social media avenues such as Facebook and Twitter.
The Secretary attends the Parents Support Group meetings and records minutes which are distributed to the group and to our Musical Director.
The Treasurer of the Parents Group is responsible for keeping accurate records of the Parents Support Group financial activities. He or she makes all deposits and is responsible for paying accounts approved by group members.
The Junior Redcoats have a small operating budget and have very little expenses. The fundraiser organizes and executes 3 - 4 fundraisers throughout the year to raise funds to pay for social activities for the band members and our annual photo day.
The Social Committee is made up of 2 to 5 members. They help out with several activities throughout the year such as our annual Christmas party, barbecues and other social events. Band parents are encouraged to join this committee because its a great way to get involved if you are new to the band.
The Junior Redcoats will usually do 4 to 5 performances a year. The Head Chaperone organizes parent volunteers to support the kids and the Musical Director during performances. The Head Chaperone also ensures the kids have the proper band attire on and during performances.
The Uniform Coordinator ensures all band members have purchased uniforms for the upcoming performances. They are responsible for sourcing and ordering uniform shirts, jackets, gloves, summer and winter hats.
