Benefits for modest costs
For most of the Preston Scout House Band Inc. entities the annual membership fee is $50, with winter guard members paying more initially to help meet their travel costs.
Members of other units who travel by bus to performance sites typically pay $15 for trips within in Canada and $25 for trips across the border to the United States. Members also pay their own food and accommodation costs on overnight trips.
Band members purchase their own Aussie uniform hat and storage box and supply their own black belt, socks and shoes.
Cadet members only need to supply their own black socks & shoes. Other uniform components are provided.
Members may also wish to purchase such items as a music stand, Scout House street wear jackets and T shirts.
Scout House supplies equipment, instruments and cases for members, along with paying for the repairs and maintenance required through normal use.
