And the band played on

This letter is in appreciation of the Parkersburg High School Big Red Marching Band and Band Director Dan White for their help in saving the Annual PHS Football Ice Cream Social on Aug. 23. As the rain poured, desserts filled with water, and people ran for cover, the band marched to the field and did not miss a beat.

The social didn’t miss a beat either. The band played through the downpour keeping the festive atmosphere going. When the rain stopped, the social continued on. The band showed true school spirit. Parkersburg High is lucky to have them represent their school.
