FALLBROOK – In light of Fallbrook High School’s invitation to participate in the historic 75th commemoration of the end of World War II, many supporters have reached out to the band’s booster club. Cmmdr. Chris Ingraham of the Fallbrook Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1924 presented the Warrior music program with $4,725, Aug. 22. A donation from chapters located in Fallbrook, Lakeside and San Diego.

“This is a great honor for the band students and it meets our mission to promote patriotism and Americanism through education. So we wanted to help them all make this a reality,” Ingraham said. “The experience and life lessons they will get for participating in this event, will last a lifetime. The Fallbrook VFW Post asked for donations from other posts in the San Diego area, and they gave. We all recognize the magnitude of this honor, with the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II being celebrated in 2020. The men and women who served during World War II were the same men and women that built this nation into what it is today. They were known as the Greatest Generation for a reason. The band students will get to experience that.”

Another supporter comes from Fallbrook’s Masonic Lodge No. 317. After a successful pancake breakfast, the FHS Band Boosters were able to raise $1,325 Saturday, Aug. 24. The Masonic Lodge has invited the band to another pancake breakfast in support of the band’s event in Hawaii.

The Masonic Lodge will host the Fallbrook High School Marching Warriors for another pancake breakfast, Sept. 21. Tickets are $10 per plate. Each plate will include a stack of pancakes, sausages, eggs and coffee or juice.

Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.fhswarriormusic.org/event-schedule. Additional ticket sales options will be posted on the band’s website.
