Good Morning Mr. Royer,
I attended the Hempfield vs LS Football Game last evening, mainly to  see my granddaughter on the Hempfield Cheering Squad, but was highly  impressed watching the Lampeter-Strasburg Marching Band Performance at  halftime. The band sounded great, well-balanced and the marching  technique was quite good also. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole show.  Congratulations to you and your staff for a job well-done.
Please convey my message to your musicians. Thanks.
Dale Weller - Retired Director of the Warwick Marching Band 1969-1999.
