Ms. Lois should be posting here next week once she returns from her summer vacation. In the meantime, I just wanted to share this news blurb I found from the Pomona Now blog. Pomona Now is apart of the online Daily Bulletin newspaper.
Pomona High band seeks donation of instruments
The Pomona High School Marching Band is in need of help.
During the last two years, the band has grown and now lacks enough musical instruments for its members.
The band and band director Alison Fisher are asking for donations of "gently used" musical instruments.
"Some school marching bands like the parade competitions," Fisher said in a statement.
"Here at Pomona High we're into field competition, and that's been drawing more students to our program. Also, the middle schools have been sending us more and more talented musicians. Now that our band program is rebuilding, our challenge is to make sure everyone has the instruments they need."
In addition to instruments, the band program will accept financial donations. The financial contributions will help cover costs connected with participating in competitions, transportation and repairing instruments, the statement said.
To make a donation or for additional information, call Pomona High band director Alison Fisher at (909) 397-4498, ext.334.
And here's a music-related knock-knock joke for today:
Accordion to the TV, it's going to rain tomorrow.
I hope so because I'm done with all this heat! :-P
