September Newsletter

The Brass Band is preparing for a concert and still actively seeking players.
At the heart of a brass band are the trumpets. Last March, Don Haener, a popular Erie bandman for over 60 years, was visited by the Black Camel. For his musical abilities and his warm personality, Don is irreplaceable. Yet, the trumpet section will welcome another member to help ll the gap.

Bill Fairgraves, a professional musician and Shriner for over fifty years, leads the trumpet section. Art Smaltz, PP, plays trumpet and is President and Treasurer of the band. The third member of the trumpet section is David Lester. If you have a trumpet and would like to play, come join this group of musicians.

The band welcomes new members at every position. We are especially in need of an alto saxophonist and trombone players. Rehearsals are on Tuesday nights, 7:30 to 9:00 p.m., at the Zem Zem Shrine. The Well of Zem Zem is open after practice.

The Brass Band plays so children can.

Forest Feighner, Noble Saxophonist
