Keeping up with past and present happenings in a remarkable small town.
Could this be the CD of A band?
This is not the High School Band, it's the All Girl Meridian Fife and Drum Corps. I have photos from when my sister and most of her friends were members.
That sure is the Woodpeckers. My sisters and I were in the corp in the 50's. My sister Dee, played the bells first, then the base drum, my sister Karen played the base drum and I played the fife. Boy does that bring back memories.
My fondest memories of high school were from Marching Band. Mr. Don Bishop Gibson was a good director and didn't deserve some of the youthful shenanigans by band members. We had those yellow uniforms and were often called a bunch of bannanas. Football nights were great.
NOT BEING A PART OF THE BAND, I DO REMEMBER THE YEARLY MOUNTING OF A LOCK AND CHAIN ON MR. GIBSON'S GARAGE DOOR, SANS KEY FOR MR. GIBSON.RUSS TURNER
I was also in the fife & drum corps. The picture above is of the original members. I can't believe the corps isn't around anymore. It is sad.
