    What Tremendous Memories!!

    Posted by Brad Hawkins on 3/5/2001, 2:11 am

    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!!
