The First Ever Woodmore H.S. Alumni Band a HUGE Success!
The first ever Alumni Band Night held on September 21st was a huge success!!! Over 60 alumni showed up, despite the rain, and have said they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Seth Bringman, a former field commander, said, "Most fun I've had in a long time. So good to see everyone and have a chance to conduct the band and fellow alumni! Hope we have it next year." Mrs. Wilt asked for feedback from the Alumni and everyone has requested that this be a yearly event.
