Host family praises band members

Letter to the Editor | Sunday, September 9, 2007

We were honored to have two members of your amazing band as visitors to our home on the eve of the Penn State-Notre Dame game. The band performed for our local football game on Friday night. The halftime and post-game shows were amazing, but more enjoyable to me was seeing these spirited young men and women in the stands with our high school band.After the game, we collected Patrick and David and took them to our home to sleep before going off to Happy Valley the next day. They are delightful young men and wonderful representatives of your school. Being far from “home” and in a competitive venue can’t be easy (nor was the long bus ride, complicated by an emergency on the Pennsylvania Turnpike), but these students were a joy to have. Thanks for sharing your band with us and with Altoona.
