Grant funds purchase of new AHS band uniforms

(Continued)

“If we got brand-new uniforms, they would have been over $200 per uniform,” Fijalkowski said. “They’re used, a band had a pretty big batch, but they’re in great shape, they took very good care of them and some of them are actually unused.”

The SEA Fund was created several years ago in honor of the Class of 1960’s 50th reunion and is used to support activities that enrich the educational experiences of Amesbury High students. According to AEFI president Laurie Knapp, the alumni remembered how activities like athletics and band helped keep them engaged and motivated, and how they used to be free for all.

By establishing the fund, the alumni could assist current students who struggle to pay the activity fees now required for participation.
