All over Wayne County, you may hear a collective sigh of relief from band directors who are happy to see some sun. With only a few days until the first band competition, rain has been a big concern over the last few weeks.
According to Lisa Savage, band parent of two students at Northeastern, most of the bands are behind in practice due to the rain. Several of the Wayne County bands have had to find alternate places to practice during the inclimate weather, some using the Tom Raper Center at the fairgrounds. And some are making up time by having 12 hour practices.
Centerville Archway Classic
The Centerville Archway Classic is this Saturday, July 18, at Centerville High School at 7:00 p.m. The creativity and work involved in getting these bands where they are today in time for the competitions is something to be applauded. For Northeastern, their hardest work really begins following the Archway Classic when band camp starts next week.
Lisa Savage is excited to be able to help at band camp this year for her children’s band, but expects it to involve a lot of hard work for the kids.
She shared that most bands, including theirs, probably started practicing in May, but again the weather has put them all behind schedule.
Let’s get out this Saturday and support these bands and all their hard work at the Centerville Archway Classic! The next band competition will be the Jay County Lions Contest on July 24, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. in Portland. On August 1, 2015 you can catch the bands in Winchester at the Drums at Winchester competition, at 7:00 p.m.
Good luck to all the Wayne County Bands!
Note: State Fair Band day is August 8, 2015 with the line up of: Northeastern starting at number 11, Lincoln at 20, Richmond at number 29, Centerville at 30, and Hagerstown at 40.
Looking for something exciting to do this weekend AND something that supports a great organization? Then you will want to head out to the Wayne County 4H Fairgrounds for the Wild Wheels 4 Wernle event.

Kids will set up at 10:00 a.m. and judging starts at 11:15. After the winners are announced and tropies are given on stage, many kids will stay during the Taste of Italy so that you can sample their lemonade and other treats they are making.
Sunday, May 17, is Lemonade Day all over Wayne County!
What a great day to go for a ride around Wayne County and discover all the talent our youth in the area have developed. Kids have gone through training for this day in their schools and through the Lemonade Day workshop and mentoring programs. They have learned about setting goals, making plans, setting a budget, working their plan and good customer service–among many other great business principles. They are ready to serve you!
Make a kids day on Sunday by encouraging them in their business efforts. Who knows, you may be the one person who makes them realize they have what it takes to own their own business and become successful!
Today Lemonade….Tomorrow the World!!

We are excited to announce our 9th annual Blast at the Underpass outdoor concert series. The Blast at the Underpass is InCONCERT’s signature event. We have been hosting this event year after year in the Depot District to celebrate July 4th. Please share with your readers this community event.
Best Tasting & Best Stand Contests
Not only can you support their efforts by purchasing their lemonade and admiring their stands, you will be helping them to understand the rewards of owning their own business. The kids, and their families, have spent hours mixing up special lemonade recipes, designing and building their stands, as well as working on their budget and other aspects of business ownership.
Support Local Non-profits
Many of the children donate a portion of their earnings to local non-profits like Relay for Life, HELP animal shelter, Boys and Girls Club, and many others. So by supporting them, you are supporting non-profits in our community.
To enter the Best Tasting & Best Stand contests, you must be registered for Lemonade Day. (registrations will be available that day if you haven’t signed up yet, or sign up at your child’s school, First Bank Richmond branches, or local libraries). All contestants will be entered into a drawing for a Kindle Fire HD & a Veach’s gift card. 1st & 2nd places in both categories will receive a trophy. Set up begins at 10:00 a.m. and judging will begin at 11:15 a.m. (Celebrity judges will vote for their favorite lemonade and stand).
Contestants are encouraged to stay and sell lemonade as long as they are able, while they enjoy the Taste of Italy.
