Scenes from marching band camp, August 2012



It’s hard to believe it’s August already. The marching band is holding camp this week in the high school parking lot and the orchestra gathered for two days of preparation and coaching before the school year gets underway. The marching band’s show will prove to be a crowd-pleaser this year with popular Beatles’ tunes such as  “Lady Madonna,” “Eleanor Rigby,” “Blackbird,” and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” If you want a sneak preview, come to the high school parking lot Friday, August 24, at 8:15 p.m. Check out photos in our gallery.
