Fairmont’s premier marching band competition, The Kettering Fall Classic, will be held on October 8, 2011.

The band boosters are inviting you and/or your business to consider becoming a patron for this event. Your support of the 2011 Marching Band Program impacts the lives of not just those participating in the Fall Classic but the nearly 400 students in the Fairmont Band programs. As a patron you can support the band programs by placing an advertisement in the Fall Classic Program.

If you happen to be a business owner you may promote your business at the Classic. This event attracts over 5000 performers and music enthusiasts, and you may gain valuable visibility and positive impressions by having your advertisements announced during the Fall Classic event and read in the event program.

You may also wish to send a “good luck” greeting to one of your Fairmont marching band members, publicize an organization to which you belong, or to highlight an upcoming event with your own organization. What a great way to get the word out!

The Fairmont Bands welcome your donation in any amount to help make this event and season a success. Please send it to the address noted on the Patron Drive Ad flyer. If your donation is received by Tuesday, September 13, 2011, we’ll include your name and advertisement in the Fall Classic Program.
