We showed up at the high school, wedged ourselves into our black and gold wool uniforms and climbed aboard the non-air-conditioned yellow school bus. We were all sweating profusely when we arrived at the forming grounds. Other school bands were unloading and sweat poured from the band members' brows as they pulled out their drums, tubas, saxophones and clarinets. Illustration

I'd like to send a great big kudos to all the area people involved in all of our festivals, fairs and activities for jobs well done. There is always something going on, and their hard work is appreciated. We must realize the many hours of time that go into our small-town festivals. Year after year, some of the same people work hard so others can enjoy the offerings. Illustration
