You never know what you’ll get to bid on at a school auction – and what you’ll win. Steve W. shares the story (and photo/video) of how his bid led to a marching-band surprise for a family member:
Last fall at the WSHS Auction, we were the winning bidders of a “Personal Marching Band Performance” at a date to be named. We chose to use this for my father-in-law’s birthday. He was quite surprised to see a marching band coming up the street with a banner that read “Happy Birthday Bud” on it. The band, directed by Ethan Thomas, played 10 or so songs, much to the delight of my neighbors.
If any of the WSB readers would like their own “Personal Marching Band Performance” they can bid on it at this fall’s WSHS Benefit Auction, which will be held on Friday, November 21st. They might have to bring deep pockets, however – as “Bud” may be wanting a repeat performance.
This happened last Sunday – so if you heard mysterious marching-band music echoing around Gatewood/south Morgan Junction/Fauntleroy, this probably explains it!
