What a weekend! I'm still recovering and feel I might be a little too old for a 23 hour day, BUT it was all worth it! The FIRST ever out of state contests and the FIRST ever Noblesville Marching Band to make BOA Finals! The kids really had a taste of success and how good it feels to have your name called. Hard work pays off! Parents who helped... THANK YOU! It gave our kids the opportunity to perform twice in one day AND put their best show of the season on the field - that's why we do what we do! The reward is only going to get bigger.... keep encouraging the kids with positive words at home!!

News From Our Food Coordinator:

Jen Melton 317-363-3798,

Hello from the food coordinator! I want to extend a sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of the parents that helped make sure the band was fed and hydrated this weekend. Thank you to the parents who contributed to the breakfast bags, came in a 5:00 AM to make sure they got handed out, cleaned up after the group left/when the group returned, and the chaperones that helped hand out snacks/dinner, fill water cups, move water jugs (again and again and again), and were available for any help needed. It was an amazing effort by all involved! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
