Service to the Band:

Marching Band

Brothers and veteran band members help new freshmen move in cir. 2005

Rookie Move-in Day 
 
For this event, brothers encouraged other band members to come to camp early so we were around when the new freshmen moved into their dorms.  This creates an early relationship between upper and lower classmen that is important for the coming season and helps breaks some of the tension for both student and parents of coming to college for the first time. 

Other Marching Band Service Projects:

  • Bus duties (cleaning, etc.)
  • "Clean-up" crews (both on and off the field)
  • Uniform hemming & organizing 
  • Equitment moving / set-up
  • Decorating the locker room for the football team

"Striving for the Highest" for the Next Generation of Musicians!!!

The brothers from Lambda Delta have been sharing their love for marching band and band music with the next generation of college musicians and possible brothers.

  • Three brothers from Lambda Delta assisted Shippensburg High School band director, Mr. Robert Maag, at his summer band camp teaching basics, profecting marching style, and leading basics. We hope to offer our assistance as an annual project. Brother have also assisted at Ship High's annual Band-a-thon and District Band Fesitival and have become die-hard supporters of Ship High football, coming to games to not only support the team...but the band as well as spectators and musicians in the stands.
  • Brother have also journyed to Gettysburg Area High School as a pep band to support musicians and football players there and offer service whenever possible.

Concert Band
 

Folder Donation

            The Concert Band folders were purchased by the Lambda Delta chapter and brothers also help the band's librarian staff sort music.

 

Set-up/tear down

            Every day before and after concert band, the brothers of Lambda Delta set-up and tear down the band room with chairs and music stands.  Brothers also help clean up the room and return it back to the conditions present before practice.

Tux hemming
            Every concert band season, a number of brothers get together to hem tux pants for the male members of the concert band.

Concert Program Collecting

The brothers of Lambda Delta have branched out from just helping out the marching/concert bands and have helped serve the music department as a whole.  Campus concerts are mandatory for students in music courses, and instead of handing them in to a professor, brothers offer their services as “middle man” by collecting the programs and sort them for individual music professor. 

Delivering The Slate:
 
Brother from Lambda Delta also help out on the Shippensburg campus by volunteering to deliever coupies of the school newspaper, The Slate, to department buildings and student living areas, both on and off campus.

Service to the Community:

The Annual Children's Fair: Music Awareness

Promoting Music Awarness in the Schools:
 
Ten or twelve musicians from the marching band (not all brothers) visited with and gave a forty-five minute presentations to elementary school children from both Letterkenny and Grace B. Luhrs Elementary Schools. Speakers brought their respective instruments, explained how to play them, and showed the students what made each instrument special along with audience participation.

Brothers help at the annual Ship Children's Fair cir. 2004

The Children’s Fair is an annual event in which the brothers of Lambda Delta run an “instrument petting zoo.”  Held at Heiges Field House on the Shippensburg University campus, the "zoo" encourages younger students from the community a chance to test out and get a closer look at instruments like flutes, horns, tubas, drums and flags to name a few and raise music awareness in the community.

Books

The Lambda Delta
Book Drive:
 
Brothers collected books over the summer and brought them all back to Ship in the fall.  Brothers then drove around the community and delivered them to elementary schools, nursing homes and the public library.

Christmas Caroling / Dicken's Day

Brothers preform X-mas carols at a local retirement community cir. 2005

For Dicken's Day, brothers put together a pep band and played Christmas songs at various places on Shippensburg's King Street or play / sing at local retirment communities. Lambda Delta also set up a bake sale stand with hot dogs and refreshments. 

Around Christmas time, a group of brothers get together and drive to local retirement centers to play and sing Christmas carols for the elderly.  Though some performance were not always Grammy-award winning, it was an amazingly good time and the residents thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment.

Ship Shape Day

Ship Shape Day is an oppertunity for groups from the University and the community to get together and help clean up the streets of Shippensburg.

Lambda Delta has been involved in this event since its installation in July, 2003.

Last year, brothers from the chapter were assigned Richard Avenue and Queen Street, which are possibly the dirtiest streets in all of Shippensburg. This served as a sign that the community can count on Lambda Delta with the most challenging clean-up assignments and get them done with spirit and teamwork.
