Music in the Park

The Rich Hill bands provided the community with musical entertainment in the circle park last night.  Mrs. Allison Oates is the band teacher and she started the evening with a large group of 5th grade band students who showed off all the musical skills they’ve picked up during their first year of band.


The 6th grade band and high school bands followed while the junior high group waited for members to arrive following a track meet.  Mrs. Oates recognized her seniors and state music qualifier Lucas Breckenridge.  Junior high band members finished off the evening.  It was a great evening to spend outdoors.
