A big 'thank you' to percussion leaders Rob K., Bob O., and Sarah S., as well as Leadership Team members Evan C., Cameron N., and Evangeline T., for their terrific help today as the DGN Band unboxed new marching percussion.  The new drums will be used for the first time during the upcoming 2013 Marching Band season.

Thank you to all the students who volunteered upwards of 5 hours today to assemble the drums, carriers, stands, cymbals, and accessories!
