Summer band ended
Tuesday night after two sweltering evening practices this week. Summer
practices for the full band began July
30th with morning and early afternoon sessions. Director Ron Lewis
equated the 6 hours per day in the past 2 weeks to at least 6 weeks
of progress if school had been in session. As a reward for their efforts
learning the 2007 marching program (so far) the band was treated to
burgers, hotdogs and some slip'n'slide fun to mark the end of summer
band. The band will start at normal school time Thursday for the first
day of school and then start 7am practices Friday which will continue
until marching season ends sometime in November.
The CCC Band Boosters
held their monthly meeting at Sallee Field Tuesday while their kids

In addition their
normal morning practices the band will also have Tuesday evening practices
at the field. The band has grown to about 65 members this year (about
50 marched last season). There are about 25 first time members who have
just learned the basic of marching band. Anyone interested in supporting
the high school band is invited to join the boosters or simply donate
to the organization.
Booster president Sharon Kirwin conducted the booster's meeting while the band
practived at the orth end of Sallee Field August. 14th.
