Oct 28th. The band received all superior ratings and brought home
a Best in Class for Percussion. In addition to these, they brought
home the 3rd place overall band trophy. Congratualtions to our DHS
Marching Bulldog Band!!!!! We are so proud of you. Also, we would
like to thank Mr. Don Jones, because it is with his leadership these
kids were able to achieve these awards.
On Oct. 14th,2006 the DHS Bulldog band participated in the Peach
Blossom Band Festival in Chilton County. The band brought home all
superior ratings and two very special items. The Band and Color
Guard were named "Best in Class". These kids have worked
very hard this year and we are so proud of them. Their next competition
will be on Oct. 28th, in Winfield Al. Contrats on a job well done!!!!
Last Sat. some of the DHS band went to UAB and attended UAB All
Star Band Day.
These students get to spend the day with UAB's Blazer Band. They
learn music and have a great time. That night they got to perfom
with the Blazer Band on the field at halftime. It is a long day,
but if you ask these kids "Would you do it again" the
answer is YES. These are the students who attended:
David Howard, Andy Meininger, Breanna Tucker, Ashley Dale, Josh
Versailles, Tyler Flemming, Ashley Freeman, Heather Freeman, and
Amber Langley. Sue Samuels, the director of bands at UAB is also
Not pictured, but attended: Dennis Parker and D J Hartley.
