Marching bands absent

Bangor’s Independence Day parade: Great support. Great organization. Absolutely great community support in the way of enthusiastic and upbeat viewers of all ages.

Missing were the marching bands.

It’s ironic that all of our local schools have marching bands that ask for contributions to subsidize trips to Florida, Washington and other venues yet don’t participate in our local celebration. The talent is there, but where is the patriotism? Should this not be high on every school’s yearly agenda?

If funding is the issue I would be happy to support, if asked.
