The Memorial Day Parade in Sussex

On Monday, A.J. marched in his first parade as a trumpet player. The Templeton Middle School marching band was part of the Memorial Day parade in Sussex. It was really cool to see him at the end of the first row. Later, he told us that he was the only sixth grader in the first row. I don’t know if that was by design or mere coincidence. Whichever it was, it made him feel very special. The band played one song throughout the parade, “On Wisconsin!” They had to memorize it and A.J. has been working on it for weeks. I was really amazed. As a band, they sounded really, really good… and their marching wasn’t half bad either.

It was a very nice parade and fairly well attended. Both the High School and Middle School bands marched. I’m sure it will be the first of many for our trumpet player.
