2013 Bandsman of the Year


My choice for the 2013 Bandsman of the Year is Bud Smith! Bud is our quiet, faithful, thoughtful soul. He makes every holiday a reason to have goodies…green cupcakes for St Patrick’s, red, white and blue ones for the 4th of July, cookies for Valentine’s, Halloween, and Christmas. Whenever a treat is in order, Bud will come through! It’s fun and it is much appreciated. It’s a long drive for Bud to make practice and events, but he rarely complains – we worry when he gets held up, so we call Nancy so she’ll be worried too!! The effort that Bud put into preparations for our trip to Lake George was the clincher. We had a great weekend thanks to hours of behind the scenes planning and organizing by Bud. We all know how grateful Bud is of any helpful hints we give him to improve. Please keep them coming to show him how much we appreciate his contribution to the band. Thank you, Bud!
