There were over 100 Bertha-Hewitt alumni that dusted off their instruments and flags to march in the Alumni Marching Band during the Bertha Days parade under the direction of retired band teacher, Ken Nelson.

“It worked out. People came that I didn’t know were coming, and some that I thought were coming didn’t, but it all worked out. It was a good group,” said Nelson.

The alumni band performed once before in 2016, along with that year’s marching band students to help fill in the ranks as there were not many students that year.

Everyone enjoyed the alumni band. . .
