Eighteen students started In this band. Faithful work was done until the close of the school year at which time they presented a. short concert.
In the fall of 1928 the board of education assumed the responslbilty and engaged Mr. Hughes to teach band music In the school for the ensuing year. There were twenty-eight enrolled in the course. In May. 1929. the band Journeyed to Stevens Point to take part In the music contest. Although the band did not carry away any honors, every member enjoyed himself immensely. l urlng the summer months this organization played many concerts both in and out of the city.

Much of the success of the band Is due to tHr untiring efforts of the Band Mothers Club, which helps in buying uniforms. Instruments, and music, to the Board of Kducation which has never failed to support the hand and to Mr. Kahl who is always on hand with a word of encouragement.
The band is proud and happy to live in a community which recognizes and appreciates the value of this organization, which stimulates interest for good music, and cultivates worthwhile leisure time for the young people. The student body realizes the advantage which such an organization offers it.
