From the Director, Smitty

Sad News - Stephen Boyce passed July 2nd. I am so saddened about this. He would drive over every week to play. I was lucky to ha gone over and talked with him about horns, music and the VFW Band. The funeral will be this Saturday. I will post the information about it. What a wonderful guy and I will be looking forward to playing beside him in the Lord's Band. We will miss you Stephen.
