I Need A Band!

Posted Friday, July 11, 2008, at 9:05 AM

A couple nights ago, we were to Arapahoe to see the 43rd US Army Band play in town park. What a treat! The guys and gals did an outstanding job entertaining the crowd with some fun and inspiring music. Of course part of the reason behind the Army band concerts is recruiting, and a comment that recruiters were available to answer any questions was made. How great is that! Have an organization with what seems like unlimited funding offer entertainment with the background agenda finding new recruits.

I need a band! Why? Because it might help me enlist the help of a different kind of soldier. No, this isn't about weed warriors for those of you that have been following along for some time, this is about making donation to help the American Cancer Society.

Relay for Life is about to happen in Furnas county, and I ask you to dig into your pocket a bit and help Hoag's Heroes. Our Relay "team" is small and we don't know many folks to ask to sponsor us. Every penny you donate goes to the American Cancer Society to help fight this dreaded disease.

I can't speak for anyone else, but my motivation for helping in the fight against cancer is that even though I beat it, I wouldn't wish it on anyone and will do everything I can to help stop it so you or someone you know doesn't have to.

So strike up the band, and please go to our Hoag's Hereos ACS Relay For Life web page and make a donation. You will be helping someone that doesn't know they need the help... yet.
