"I’m with the band…"

We had the special treat of observing band practice for the Home of Hope All-Girl Marching Band. The band was formed thanks to the fund raising efforts of the students at Christ the King School in Pleasant Hill. Instruments were purchased and a local band instructor, Johnnie, has been working with the girls to hone their skills, marching around the orphanage grounds practicing their steps, tone and timing.

And Loren finally got to fulfill his dream of playing with a marching band…

The girls’ uniforms are currently being made in the school’s sewing class. Piece by piece, they are coming together. The newest additions to the uniform were the red, feathered berets picked up by Sister Sophie. Of course, all of the Sisters had to try them on for a laugh…
