Ya gotta love libraries. My daughter taught music in the Madras, Oregon (pop. 6700) public schools through a rural outreach program. She became Band Director of the Madras Library Band (Jefferson County Library District). The library put on a parade in the dead of winter (Christmas?). The temp was sub-zero. It was so cold many of the instruments didn’t work. The parade was enthusiastically supported by the community and the participants had a blast.
