Seatback Removal

Dear HC Band students and families,

Remember all those seatbacks we installed at Commonwealth Stadium in August? The season is winding down and now we have to remove them and pack them away. UK’s last home game is November 28, so the removal is scheduled for Saturday, December 5.

All band students are required to participate in this event, which, together with the installation, raises more than $8,000 for the band program.

Because it worked so well last year, we will again work in overlapping 3-hour shifts. Sign-up sheets will be posted in the band room this week.

The shifts will be divided as follows:
11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
12 to 3 p.m.
1 to 4 p.m.
2 to 5 p.m.

We will need 35 students and 5-10 adults for each shift. If you have experience or interest in a particular task (bundling, stacking, pallet wrapping, etc.) please let us know. You are also welcome to work longer than your shift.

Water and generous snacks will be provided throughout the day. Everybody should plan to eat a good meal before coming to the stadium.

We’ll give more details in the next couple weeks, but we wanted everyone to get this date on their calendar and sign up for work shifts.

If you have questions, please contact Jennifer Barricklow at You can also call or text her at 859-940-9154.

Thank you!
