The Hatters for Music Organization (HFM) is made up of parents/guardians of current Hatboro-Horsham Marching Ensemble (HHME), Hatboro-Horsham Indoor Percussion (HHIP), and Hatboro-Horsham Indoor Color Guard (HHICG) students. Parents/Guardians play an important part of the marching ensemble community and this is an opportunity to share with your child in an activity that he/she truly enjoys.
HFM supports students by assisting when needed at: competitions, running the home shows, holding social events for band members and their families, and by attending, volunteering and chaperoning various events. The organization oversees and assumes responsibility for raising funds for a variety of expenditures as requested by the Marching Ensemble Director including but not limited to instruments, props, material for flags and entrance fees to competitions.
