Letter to the Editor: Thank you for helping our band students

The Italy Gladiator Regiment Band and Band Booster Club would like to thank the many generous people of this community who donated items and who attended the spaghetti dinner and dance Saturday evening.

A big thank you goes to Doris Mitchell and Sandy Eubank who allowed the fundraiser to be held at the Uptown Café.

Mark Stiles went above and beyond with his generous monetary donation to the event. Thank you is not enough.

We also appreciate the generous paper good donation from Dart Containers of Waxahachie. Thank you goes to Vicky Coffman for making that happen.

This event would not have been the success it was without the support and effort of the band boosters/parents. Parents and booster club members donated all the food items in order to keep costs down. Their efforts were above and beyond expectations.

The band students did an excellent job serving customers at the dinner. Many positive comments were heard from patrons about their servers.

And of course, the Gladiator Regiment Band would not be the success it is without the efforts of Jesus Perez, band director.

Again, thank you for supporting the band in their fundraising effort.

Alysa Kirton
Band Booster President
