Wednesday News --- 04/08/09

The Hartford Courant has an article by Katelyn Haggerty on playing for the UMass Marching Band. One of the stories she tells is about the band's performance at Navy. I parked in one of the satellite parking lots. As I was getting organized to leave after the game, two groups of Navy fans came over to say "Your band was great!".

I attended the Navy game with a retired Navy commander. His friend asked if we could leave the football team home in future years because we were too tough, but send the band every year. The halftime show, done facing the home Navy side, was very moving.

Frank, Thanks for mentioning my daughter's article. She wrote it for her Op/Ed journalism class and the inructor liked it enough to encourage her to send it for possible publication. She was thrilled when it was chosen...it will be a nice portfolio piece for her...Linda Haggerty '74
