Warren band is grateful

Dear Editor:Between Sept. 7-9, residents may have had a special visitor stop by their door between 5-8 p.m. These were student members of the Warren Marching Band and Color Guard. Every year in September, the Warren Band and Color Guard laces up their marching shoes and dons their uniform going door-to-door asking the community for support. We call this our "Decal Drive." As a thank you, we offer anyone who gives any amount of support a decal to proudly display, saying they support the Warren Band and Color Guard. We focus our fundraising efforts within the school boundary lines of Warren. All the members, staff and parents of Warren Band and Color Guard would like to say thank you to everyone for their support. This annual fundraiser helps offset costs of new instruments, equipment, instruction and the many other costs it takes to run a highly-successful band program. I hope the community is proud of the Warren band and color guard. It is just as important for us to represent the city of Downey proudly as it is being good musicians and performers. Please visit our website at www.warrenband.org to find out when we are performing next! -- David Niemeyer, Band Director, Warren High School
