FIRST SUMMER PRACTICE A SUCCESS
"The band's practice on Tuesday was fabulous!" said Sarah Brown, director of
the GMHS Marching Band. She was speaking about the first rehearsal of the season for the '08 Cruiser Band. New
members were introduced to the band's marching style and actually were marching around the parking lot with the veteran members
by night's end. Seniors from each section introduced first year participants and the band had a short music rehearsal
to go over the 4th of July piece. Practices will be held each Tuesday night in June from 7-9pm in preparation for the
parade. Be sure to wear tie shoes so you can show off your marching skills to the maximum. See you next Tuesday
As Mrs. Brown says, "Be there or be square!"
