This page was inspired by the following letter from Jewel Kay Childers Wallace.
Thought you might be interested in this; it is a list of the members of the
1938 Jal Band. This was not just a high school band; there were quite a few
of us who were in grade school.

Now...here is a new messageboard (we can never have enough messageboards...ha)
The BAND Story Board
I thought it might be fun for everyone to reminisce about their band experiences.
(There's a little of that on the Best of JHS board.) Share your stories of what went
on in rehearsals, on the field, in the bleachers, in the practice rooms (ahem), and on the many infamous band trips (any back seat of the bus stories?) Give us some serious insight, bring back nostalgic memories, or simply make us all laugh by embarrassing a special friend.
