Thank you Kevin Haslam for doing an article on these amazing, hard working band kids that put in hours and hours of practice and do an awesome job. Most reporters only report about sports and ignore these great kids. It's great to see these kids getting the attention they so deserve! Bravo to you Kevin, Limerick-Royersford-Spring City Patch and to all the band kids.
