Lebanon Missouri played host today to their Annual Christmas Parade. The Saturday before Thanksgiving traditionally kicks off the holiday season in Lebanon and Laclede County. The theme for the 2008 parade: Believe in the Spirit of Christmas.

The Laclede Country R-1 Marching Band (Conway Missouri) was one of over one hundred entries in the parade and one of five school bands. This was the Conway's first appearance in almost five years in this particular parade. They did not disappoint.

Director of Bands, David Taylor and his students took home 1st place for the "Best Drum Major" and 1st place for "Best Color Guard." Additionally, KJEL Radio broadcast the parade live on 103.7 FM - calling the Conway group "a very fine looking band."

Congratulations to Mr. Taylor and the Conway Marching Band!

Michael and Don- Thank you! My daughter is in the 6th grade band and on the left holding the banner. The band really has come a long way in the last few years. Mr. Taylor has done a wonderful job with the kids. He's created his own Triiibe!

That is way cool!  There is nothing I like more than High School bands.  My sons were both in them!  Thanks for sharing.

Jim - I was never in the band and really never paid attention, until now! I have to say, like you, I find that I am really enjoying their sound. My daughter plays the clarinet; son is too young yet, but wants to play percussion.
