The high school Jam the Gym has been changed for some reason only for the Creston High School winter drumline and winterguard girls and the soloists. They will perform at this time. It will be Sunday, April 6, at the middle school at 2 p.m. Watch the Creston paper for more information. Admission to this will be $5 per person with desserts being served. Proceeds go to the band department to purchase new band uniforms. The CHS calendar of events still lists the TWIRP BIRP dance on Saturday night as Jam the Gym April 5. The only change is the bands performance to Sunday.

On Saturday, March 22, I attended the competition with the Creston High School winter drumline and the winter colorguard girls in Nebraska. They attended all the competitions every weekend and received many first places of which they truly deserved. What a show they put on. Their costumes and face painting are “awesome.” This group of musicians are very talented as are the rest of the marching band kids. I’m very proud of each and every one of them as their parents and grandparents are. They are very dedicated to the band as they have really early morning practices. It shows in their performances.

Mike and Lisa Peters are very dedicated to their students. They need to be congratulated on a great job they do.

A big thank you to everyone who volunteers in any way and who followed the kids every week. Also, a very special thank you to the bus drivers bussing the kids to Nebraska all the weekends. You kept our kids safe on the roads when you really had some bad weather to drive in, getting them home around midnight.

Folks, it will be worth your time to come see these kids perform their routines on Sunday. Kids keep up the great work. The Creston High School marching band, winter drumline, colorguard, jazz band, etc. You’re all in it together. It takes all of you to perform and work as a team.

Congratulations on a job well done.
