The Shelby Whippet Band would like to say THANK YOU to everyone who helped make our recent trip to Walt Disney World possible! We have been making this trip every 4 years since 1978, when Dwight Somerville and Jack Gray organized the first trip. This trip would not have been possible without the support of parents, friends and families who supported student fund raisers, traveled with the group as chaperones, or cheered for the band along the parade route and as we left that day. The students of the 2014 Florida trip lived the motto "Remember who you and and what you represent" throughout the entire week of the trip.
Some of the highlights of our trip included marching down Main St. USA at Magic Kingdom, participating in the "You're Instrumental" workshop at EPCOT, visiting Blizzard Beach, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney Studios, and Cocoa Beach. It was an educational opportunity, not only as musicians, but as young ambassadors for our community.
Thank you again for supporting this opportunity. It is a trip we will never forget!Shelby High School Marching Band to perform at Walt Disney World on Main Street, USA!
