So, on Wednesday, our Band director got a call. She was talking on the phone, and I heard her say, "Oh, I'm so sorry, we have a parade scheduled for that day," and then she chatted for a few more minutes, then hung up. So, since it was just me and another girl in the room, and since I'm the Band President, I asked her who that was. And she says:
"That was someone from Towson. They want us to march in the Michael Phelps parade on September 11, but since we already have the Reisterstown parade, I said we couldn't>"
My mouth dropped open, and I said, "PLEEEEEEEEEASE cancel us for Reisterstown!! Franklin's Band will be there!! We can do the Phelpstival!!!! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEASE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!"
But, because she always keeps her word or whatever, we have to do Reisterstown instead of doing
I vote that our whole Band wears black in mourning for the event.
