What a thrill it is for me to see so many names from the past on this
fabulous website! I STILL see you all vividly in my memory, though most
of you look 14-15 years-old there! Each new name I see added to the
list brings another 50 images and stories back in my mind, from our
first band trip to Santa Barbara (1980 - when one of the two bus loads
of kids got in MAJOR trouble with me for "mooning" the locales from
their seats on the bus), to our 1st championship season in 1984, clear
through to my final days with the organization as Director of the two
Cadet Bands (1995).
Thanks you so very much, Ginger, for the hours of work, love, and
devotion you are putting into this website, and to all of you who
continue to add submissions to it as well. I have a personal goal
to go through my piles and piles of Spirit Memorabilia and pass on
the best of it to her so that it can be shared with everyone. I want
to encourage you all to do the same. The Spirit of Sunnyvale truly
seems to live on!
God bless you all,
"phone home" daily,...
and stay away from Hot Dog Surprize!!
