Congratulations to Bison band
Yeah for the MHS Band! It is a wonderful thing to see and hear the band growing again, however as band parents from 2001-05, we must wonder what the Gazette means by "years of inactivity."
The MHS band has been at every home football game since forever, followed the football team to all playoff and State championship games, the pep band plays at home basketball games, and has traveled to Lincoln for State B-ball. Our children (classes of '02 and '05) grew up watching the band in the Harvest of Harmony Parade on TV, then when they were in high school, they were part of the band that traveled almost every weekend in October-Harvest of Harmony, Plum Creek Band competition in Lexington, State Band competition in Lincoln, and were even part of the Ogallala homecoming parade in '01.
Jan. 1, 2002, and 2004 the MHS Band was in Dallas Texas for the Cotton Bowl Game and Music Festival.
They were very a small band, but inactive? -- I don't think so! The MHS band uniforms are looking rather tired; I believe we were told they were purchased in the early '90s. We do hope that the MHS band is able to purchase new uniforms and continue the active tradition of the MHS Band! Go band!
