We received some exciting news yesterday. Our high school band as been accepted to march in the 2011 Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California!!! WHOOO HOOO!!! We went to Hollywood with them back when Justin was in 9th grade. That was 2003. We had a blast! I am really looking forward to this. We have a little over a year to save up for it. We don't know the cost yet, but hopefully, they will shed some light on that at the next band booster meeting. They are very good at allowing the kids to do fund-raising for these trips and all the profits go straight to that student's account.
I am so proud of our band. They have an awesome program every year. They have marched in the Macy's parade about 4 or 5 times...I've lost count. They've been on a Bahamas cruise 2 times. And remember, this band has over 200 members. They are extremely well-behaved, which allows them the freedom to be able to go on these great trips.
Here's a video from their half-time show last year.
