South Band Memorabilia

Since this is the last year of Sullivan South High School, there is a lot of Rebel Band memorabilia (framed t-shirts, framed uniforms, trophies, plaques, photographs, etc.) that must find a new home!

All trophies, photos, framed t-shirts etc. that were highly sought after have been claimed.  We now need to get rid of everything else.  So, if you would like a piece of the Sullivan South Band as a memory of all the good times in the Rebel Band, here is your chance.  Items not sold will be trashed, there is no plan to retain any of the item.

Photos of all items are in a Google Folder. Trophies are organized by year and then there are separate folders for Plaques, Shadowboxes, and Uniforms.   Each item has an item number associated with it and is listed in the Memorabilia Spreadsheet.  The link to the Google Folder is

At this point, we are asking for a donation for any of the item(s) that you may want.  To obtain an item, you must send an email specifying the item description, item number, phone number, and amount of donation.  We will set pick up date(s) and notify you.

All items must be picked up and paid for by April 17, 2021.  If not paid for, items will be disposed of in May.

Payment can be made via the Band's PayPal account see above Donation Link.

Also, if your name was ever on a Band Perpetual Plaque, you can have your name plate off of it.  Please contact Mr. Hopper  if you would like your name plate.
