The Owen J. Roberts High School March Band's low brass section rented a limo to take them and band director Todd Mengel to the most recent game at Daniel Boone High School.
Well band director Todd Mengel knows now.
Apparently there is a tradition at OJR of each of the marching band's section trying to curry favor with the director in order to have the benefit of boarding the bus first.
Traditional means are often employed, such as skits or food.
|"Needless to say, Mr. Mengel was beyond surprised."|
Or in this case, outside the bus.
According info provided by parent Chris Ficca, friend of this blog, the section raised the bar on this tradition by renting a limo for Mengel, his wife and their section to take them to the game at Daniel Boone High School.
"The two young men in the dark suits are actually two
members and the masterminds
behind the entire evening," Ficca wrote.
"In an age when we read and hear so much negative about our youth, I wanted to pass this along to you. I hope it makes you smile like it did for Mr. Mengel, OJR band staff and band students," Ficca wrote.
We very much appreciate and and all submissions to the Digital Notebook, whether about band events or other specialties, particularly when they are accompanied by pictures as fun as those Ficca provided.
