Thanks to all who played in the band

Thank-you to all who performed with, or supported, the Hillsboro High School and Community Band in the Marion County Fair parade. Jost Fabricating provided the trailer, and Steve and Jeanie Bartel provided the truck.

Each of the musicians gave their time for an evening rehearsal and the parade. The high school band members performing were Amanda Bartel, Shelby Johnson, Ellian Weisbeck, Sarah Diener, Kayla Gunn, Abby Driggers, Noah Bartel, and Grace Major.

Joining the high school band members were Tim Butler, Steve Hanneman, Brad Just, Shawn Knopp, Randy Stepanek, Gregg Walker and Joey Walter.

Thanks to all the musicians for contributing their time, energy and talent to provide a musical backdrop for the parade. Finally, thank-you to all those along the parade route who showed their appreciation for the band. Your support was gratefully noticed.
