Marching band members thanked

Dear Hancock Marching Band members:

Thank you, thank you, and thank you again for all the work you put in making this year's July 4th Parade a huge success.

All young people look forward to school being out, summer vacation, and sleeping in late. But for band members, you get to look forward to June and twelve 6:30 a.m. rehearsals. No grade or extra credit given. It speaks volumes about the kind of young people you are.

Now, not everyone made this sacrifice. I had all kinds of reasons why some students couldn't commit for the summer. But you did see 57 kids march on the Fourth and this is about them.

Your only reward is the occasional compliment and a thank you.

So for me - Great job and thanks so much.

Ken Grunig
