Scout Band Performance
For the sixth year in a row, the Boy Scouts of Troop 474 expressed a desire to continue the tradition of a Boy Scout Christmas band. Adam Clark, a Life Scout of our troop, became this year's Christmas band director. From 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. the band spread music to the Guilford populace. They visited Wal-Mart, the Guilford House, Fowler's nursing home, and a new destination—Sachems Hollow. While at Wal-Mart, they collected money for the Guilford Food Bank. Their repertoire included carols such as Silent Night, Dreydl-Dreydl, and We Wish you a Merry Christmas, among many others. At every stop toes were tapped, smiles were seen, and praises were passed. The Guilford House even baked cookies and made drinks for the band members. At the end of the day, the band felt that they had accomplished something and are looking forward to next year.
