Alumni Band performance on Saturday September 8th, "home" game.

The 2018 appearance of the Alumni Band took place at the September 8th “home” game, being played on the purple and white turf of Martins Ferry’s field. Weather played a major factor in turnout numbers, with 24 members braving torrential rainfall, taking the field for both pre-game and half time performances with the youth of the High school Band. A great time was had by all and the Alumni Association provided Sha Nay Nay’s pizza and beverages to the participants at the Friday night practice that took place at Perkins Field one last time in front of Bill Jobko Stadium. The following Alumni participated, with the return of Michelle Bennington (’80) as the Field Commander and welcomed two Class of 2018 Alumni Band members in Karissa Eoff and Nicole Wilt.

It was a family affair, with siblings Patrick and Rebecca McConnaughy, Mother and Daughter Tanya and Nicole Wilt, and Sisters Kathleen Antill-Tarasi and Christa Antill Houston, along with daughter Andi Christine Painter and Alexis Nice providing help with the Banner and playing amongst the clarinet section. 
The Alumni Band welcomes back any former band members each season to join in the fun!
