The Newtown Varsity Winter Guard will hold their final Bottle and Can Drive of the season on Saturday, March 9, from 10 am until noon, at three locations: Newtown High School, Newtown Middle School and Reed Intermediate School.
Proceeds will help fund the guard's trip to Dayton Ohio for the Winter Guard International Championships in April.
Earlier this season, Winter Guard Fundraising Co-Chair Robbin Allen said that with all travel expenses for attending the Winter Guard International Championships coming from parents "and students'" pockets and costing each family roughly $600 on top of the regular season participation fees, fundraising is critical to the NHS Winter Guard.
"In a pay-to-play world, we need to fundraise in order for this sport-of-the-arts to be affordable for everyone," said Ms Allen, adding, "The people of Newtown are incredibly generous, and we count on them for support."
