Memorial Day is one day in our year when have the dedicated opportunity to pay our respects for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to defend our freedoms. While no in-person gathering will be held this year, our EAHS band & orchestra students wanted to still reflect on this day.
Thank you to all those and their families who gave their lives to allow us to enjoy our freedoms.
Votes will be taken using the Zoom Polling feature. When a vote is called, you will be automatically presented with the voting options directly in Zoom. Votes will be collected anonymously and tallied automatically.

The IMA is partnering with Yankee Candle® Fundraising, which has something for everyone, including a variety of candles, décor, home fragrance and kitchen products–some start at under $10! Best of all, our organization will earn up to 45% PROFIT ON EVERY SALE!
This fundraiser will be available through a catalog sold by students and last until March 2. However, this fundraiser also will be available online for those family members and friends who live outside of the area through July 8, 2020.
One full week into the March Forth campaign, your generosity has helped us raise over $1,200, which is over 10% of our goal of raising $10,000 by March 4! The IMA thanks you. The staff of the Instrumental Music Program of Easton Area High School thanks you. And, our students thank you “in person…”
With three weeks left in the campaign, please spread the word to friends, family members, and business connections. Any donation amount is appreciated and all donations to the campaign are tax deductible.
