Shred Your Papers, Help a Marching Band!

picture-22+1Quince Orchard High School Marching Band will benefit from a free community shred event THIS SATURDAY, September 20thShred-it trucks will be on site from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM to destroy old bills, love letters from your past lives, confidential documents, etc.

Quince Orchard High School is located at Route 28 & Quince Orchard Road, in Gaithersburg, MD.  For more information call (301) 370-0633.  A box is considered to be bankers box size, which is approximately 10″ x 12″ x 15″.  They’re taking up to 10 boxes per person free of charge.

Don’t forget to make a nice donation for the Marching Band–The Marching Cougars!  As a former band geek, I think supporting the band is a great reason to declutter you filing cabinets.

Thanks to our reader James for the heads-up on this event, and thanks to Shred-it and Bill Duff/Realty Executive for their sponsorship.

The band is also having a garage sale that morning, but most of my readership doesn’t need to be garage sale shopping. I’m just saying…

marching-band1+1Just for fun, here’s a photo from my marching days.  I couldn’t find any photos from my high school years; my mom must have them all.  This photo is from an Orange Bowl trip I took with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Cornhusker Marching Band.  Guess what year it was taken! Be the first to guess the right year, and win you’ll win a prize!
