My wife Gina & I were active members of the Pride of Pickens Marching Band Booster Club from 2002 until 2011. While we were members, we were involved in the planning and implementation of all fund raising activities of that organization.
Starting in 2003, The Pride of Pickens Marching Band Booster Club began hosting a major marching competition called ‘The Georgia Marble Marching Festival,’ which was the organization’s largest fundraiser.
This Marching Festival was reviewed as one of the best organized in the state; one year hosting as many as 24 bands. We were actively involved each festival and took on the responsibilities of organizing these events starting in 2004.
We were also in charge of the concessions sold at all home football games, which were the second largest fund raising source for the organization.
During our tenure, the Pride of Pickens Marching Band Booster Club also supported the entire fine arts department at Pickens High School. In addition to the marching band, this includes their chorus and orchestra band programs.
Our main community involvement since around 2003 has been the activities our kids have been involved in, which has predominately been in the middle schools and high school music and chorus programs.
We are also members of the Pickens Chamber of Commerce.
At Faith Pest Control, we take great pride in our community and want to show our thanks and appreciation by giving back as best we can.
Please don’t hesitate to call on me if I can ever help you in any way.
Fred Talley, President
