To the Editor...Community band gives time and thanks

To the Editor:
The Cloquet Community Band would like to thank Tom Urbanski and the Fond du Lac Community College for allowing us to play at their facility.They have a wonderful place to play a concert.
We had three Monday evening concerts this July. Every evening was a beautiful evening and the bugs were not bad. For those who attended, we thank you for your support of the Cloquet Community Band.
As most of you may know, we are a group of people from all walks of life. We love music and like to play whatever instrument we have learned, probably in school, and now have a chance to bring that instrument out of the closet and play again. We all donate our time one night a week to practice and to learn new music so we can provide a free Christmas Concert and a free spring concert open to the community to come and enjoy. We also play for Sunnyside Health Care Center, and the Fourth of July and the Labor Day parades. This has been a big commitment for some of the members who are still working as well as those who are retired. We are proud that we have just completed 15 years of giving free concerts to the community.
Carol Risdon, Director, and
Cloquet Community Band members
