Big Blue Band headed to Disneyworld next year

Members of the Rockdale High School “Big Blue Band from Tiger Land” are planning a trip to Walt Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida on June 8-14 and are currently looking for individuals and businesses to help fund the experience.

“ We will be making band trip T- shirts to help promote our trip, identify our students while at Disneyworld and at the same time advertise our sponsors,” RISD director of bands Adrian Acevedo said.

Sponsorships are due in by Feb. 27, Acevedo said, and can be sent in to PO Box 632, Rockdale TX 76567.
