SHS boosters bring back Down Home Bazaar

The Sequim High School Band Boosters host their eighth-annual Down Home Holiday Bazaar from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 25, at the SHS cafeteria at 601 N. Sequim Ave.

The bazaar will feature local vendors selling hand-crafted gift items like jewelry, candles and ornaments, plus raffle prizs.

The Sequim High School Jazz Band will also give a special performance.

“We are thrilled to provide this venue for our local arts and crafts vendors to reach Holiday Shoppers and all for a good cause,” Sara Benjamin, President of the Band Boosters Club, said.

“It’s a fun way to get into the spirit of the holidays. Plus, money raised by this event will help us purchase very badly-needed, new band uniforms.”

Band boosters are raising money for new marching band uniforms. The current uniforms have been in use for 15 years with repeated alterations and cleanings.

New uniforms will cost about $15,000, band boosters say.

Under the direction of Vern Fosket, the Sequim High Marching Band performs at home football and basketball games and marches in a variety of parades, including the Macy’s Day Parade on the Friday following Thanksgiving.

The next Sequim High School Band concert is set for 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14, in the Sequim High auditorium.

The concert band, wind ensemble, percussion ensemble and jazz band will perform a selection of seasonal songs.
