Fifty Years Ago This Month October 1971

This past weekend, our great grand niece (see how old I am) played in a local invitational Volley Ball Tournament at St. Mary High School.

That dominating presence was to last for over five decades, a dominance that had much to do with the band’s adherence to its motto providing “Music Anyway You Like It.”
