Pride in all our children

Dear editor:

Northern Exposure, the band competition held at War Memorial Field from the eyes of grandpa.

As each band came to the field it was like a flower garden coming to life. Al the children did great, and the performances were beautiful.

Then, at the end, the awards ceremony was presented in Olympic style.

It was like the whole flower garden blossoming as each band marched on the field and stood and parade rest very professionally until all 13 bands were on the field.

It was like all the petals of all the flowers opening to great beauty. The petals were our children.

One of the most beautiful sights to be seen on War Memorial Field with approximately 300-plus children performing.

With great pride,

Grandma and Grandpa V
