Stompin’ Along – Worth a VARIETY of Words

Late Friday night, I posted this picture of the DuBois Area Marching Band, the Beavers football team and the cheerleaders. It was taken at the end of the 69-56 Beaver win on Homecoming night! I took it to show the support that both the team and the band have for each other. Thought it would be a feel good pic. It got great response on our facebook page, but one person saw this picture, and complained about the garbage in the stands. Another talked about how no one supports the band. Because I work with both of the groups, I feel that I need to clarify why I posted it. It’s called support! More than a fair share of times, I have heard people talk about how bad the kids of the area are. This was a mutual show of support. All season long, the band serves as an important source of support. Years ago, when the band traveled to away games with the cheerleaders, they were often the only fan base that would travel. That task remains with the cheerleaders. This is a happy football team, and cheerleaders showing support for their fellow students. Over the last few years, the band has had it’s share of difficulties. You couldn’t tell from this performance! Like I said on the facebook page, what a great night!
