Port Angeles High School band members raising funds this weekend

PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles High School band members will be busy this weekend.

They will perform holiday favorites from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m Saturday outside Jim’s Pharmacy, 424 E. Second St.

The pharmacy is holding a holiday open house from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day, said owner Joe Cammack.

The pharmacy will offer discounts in the gift and specialty food departments and offer samples of some of the specialty foods, he said.

The pharmacy will make a contribution to the PAHS Band Program, he added.

Later that day, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m, the band will host a Book In takeover at Port Book and News, 104 E. First St.

The business will donate 20 percent of the night’s proceeds on regularly priced books, magazines, games, cards, socks, maps and art supplies to the PAHS Band Program, according to owners Alan and Cindy Turner.

“This is a great way to support schools and the local economy while finding that ‘perfect’ gift for friends and family,” Cindy Turner said.

The bookstore often conducts takeovers for nonprofits, especially schools, Alan Turner said. On Dec. 8, it will host one for the North Olympic Land Trust, he added.

On Sunday, band members will staff a table at Swain’s General Store, 602 E. First St.

At all three locations, band members will sell Band Boosters Shop Local cards, which offer discounts at 12 area businesses.

Discount cards cost $10 and can be used multiple times from now through May 30.

Along with Jim’s Pharmacy, Port Book and News and Swain’s General Store, the cards offer discounts at Drake’s U-Bake Pizza and Subs, 819 S. Lincoln St.; Peninsula Music, 1607 E. Front St., Suite B; Coyote Barbecue, 201 E. Front St.; Togas, 122 W. Lauridsen Blvd.; Higher Grounds Espresso at 802 C St. and 510 N.Oakridge Drive; Pen Print, 230 E. First St., Suite A; Bike Garage, 403 S. Lincoln St., Suite 2; Black Diamond Bridal, which can be contacted by calling 360-452-2354; and Tiny Bubbles Pet Store, 1130 E. Front St.

Proceeds will help band members cover costs associated with upcoming performances in Washington, D.C., as well as uniforms and other costs associated with band participation, according to Cheryl Baumann, Band Booster president.
