On Sunday, Nov. 11, the marching band had their annual banquet at the Hilton Garden Inn Southpointe.

Each year, the marching band and their parents gather to eat a nice dinner and embrace all of their hard work throughout the season.

The dining hall was all decorated with black and orange balloons and pictures of the students from the year.

The evening kicked off with a little speech from director Mr. Thompson. Next, Mr. Thomspon recognized all members of the marching band, beginning with the seniors and ending with the freshmen.

When called, the students walked up, shook all of the directors’ hands and received a Bethel Park Music hat.

The seniors also received a framed picture of them in the marching band.

As the night went on, there was a video prepared for the students to watch, which consisted of pictures, videos, and performances throughout the year.

Freshman Kessid Wicker was very excited to have his first of many band banquets. When asked how his first banquet was, he said: “A lot of fun because it is nice to sit down and have a formal dinner after you accomplish something and talk about it. It was like eating with my family.”

With the night wrapping up, all of the students walked around the dining hall and were able to look at other pictures and take them home with them.

This was the last punctuation mark on the marching band season this year.
