During the time that I am gone, general LVW questions and concerns can be sent to Tony Kubek, our Head Volunteer Coordinator, at email@example.com. LVW members from the various schools should try contacting their local band director first. For FVL, you can contact Elisabeth Wagner at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What to bring with you:
LVW members should pack clothing for three days of rehearsal and performance. Please remember your personal uniform items, which include the black shoes/socks, gloves, and black compression t-shirts.
Check back on the Post from May 17 for a detailed packing list - just to make sure you don't forget anything.
Pack a bag lunch for the first meal on Friday, June 24. All other meals for the weekend will be provided by LVW.

Transportation Home Following the Hartland Parade on June 26
LVW will be busing the band to Kettle Moraine LHS on Sunday following the Hartland parade. The band will be changing out of uniform, eating a meal, and cleaning the KML facilities. Two buses will then return to FVL. For all other schools, check with your transportation coordinator for arrival times following the parade.
If you will be picking up your LVW member following the Hartland parade, the pick up point will be Kettle Moraine LHS, 3399 Division Rd, Jackson, WI 53037.
If you are going home with parents and are not returning on the bus or with your school’s transportation, the following procedures MUST be followed:
1. Your parents must pick you up where we are changing out of uniform. For this weekend, that will be on Sunday, at Kettle Moraine LHS. If you are picking up your child at KML, you must be there when the band is ready to leave. If you are not there when the band is ready to leave, your child will come with the band.
2. Your parents must check you out with the attendance chaperone from your bus. This must be done with you and your parent present.
3. If your parents are not there when the band is ready to leave, you will come with us. We leave no one behind – EVER!
4. You may not ride home with anyone else other than your parents UNLESS you have a written permission signed by your parents, and UNLESS that written permission is put into our hands. DON’T FORGET THE NOTE AT HOME, because there are NO EXCEPTIONS!
