The Franklin Band is devastated for our friends, the Castle High School Marching Knights, who lost one of their own early Sunday morning on her way home to Newburgh from Grand Nationals along with her father and grandmother.
The high school band community has shown a tremendous outpouring of love and support for Sophie’s grieving family and friends, and we echo the sentiments of those nationwide. We stand with you, Castle – today, tomorrow, and thereafter. #WeAreAllCastle
We will share details on how to help Sophie’s family via our Facebook page.
Congratulations again to our 2016 FHS Raffle winners, Angela and Larry McClure! The McClures are proud parents of Spencer, a sophomore in the band. They sold 30 tickets to the raffle but purchased only one, the winning ticket!
Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s raffle! While the McClures won a new vehicle, it’s really The Franklin Band that won through the instruments and equipment that can be purchased with the funds that were raised.
