Good Food, Good Music
Saturday evening, April 12 the World's Greatest Band Boosters served a tasty spaghetti dinner while Ed Sims direct the Rittman musicians to an evening of entertainment, all to raise money for the student musicians of Rittman High School.
Members of the band boosters were on hand to serve dinner and sell mementos of the Rittman band past and present. Items on sale included compact discs of the Jazz band and Steel Drum band as well as t-shirts and license plate frames. The most unusual of the items was a "buffalo" hat, last worn when my daughter, Sylva marched in 2001.
The bands alternated between the jazz band, the steel drum band and the concert band. Each played two sets apiece, with some students playing for almost three hours before they got to eat their meal, which they all earned. The bands did their usual superb job.
And seeing that this was the last official WGBB function for Brenda, as her son, Tyler, is graduating this year, I do have to put a gratuitous photo of her in this post. She has been a good friend to me, a daily reader of this blog, and my number one supporter among band parents for the past several years.
