Supporting Alamo's Bandsters ...

Younger Son and I will be doing our part to help some fellow musicians, Saturday ... and we hope you will, too.

According to
this report from the MRT staff, "seventh- and eighth-grade band students at Alamo Junior High, trying to raise funds to help defray the expense of summer band camp at West Texas A&M University, will participate in a daylong Play-a-Thon Saturday at Alamo."

Younger Son is, himself, a bandster and attends another junior high. But he has some good friends in the band at Alamo, and we both want to do what we can to help them attend summer band camp in Amarillo ... the same session, as a matter of fact, that Younger Son will be attending.

About 140 band students will participate in the six-hour event. A Play-a-Thon Concert will be held at 3:20 in the afternoon, Saturday, on the front steps of the school, but supporters can stop by and make a donation anytime from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. The school is located at 3800 W. Storey Avenue, just east of Midland Drive, and a couple blocks south of Cuthbert, in southwest Midland.

Some great kids making a beautiful noise for a worthy cause ... won't you stop by and show your support?
