Dear marching band member and parent,
First of all, thoughts and prayers to all who suffered inconveniences as a result of the recent storm. It is my understanding that as I write this, there are a number of our families who still do not have power. It’s awkward to consider that life must still move on during this difficult time; however, there really is no other choice… Hopefully, our sense of “normalcy” will be restored soon!
The purpose of this letter is to provide you with information concerning our home football game this Friday and the Western Alamance H.S. Competition this Saturday.
