It seemed appropriate to mix a message about the Pride of the Lake's success at the FZM River City Showcase with a message from band alumnus Gina Atkinson. We are delighted as a band family and a small lake community that the Camdenton Band took first in class, won first in class for best music/visual effect/general effect, and took second overall in finals. But Gina remembers everything that Mr. Baur, Mr. Fenn, Mrs. Fall, Mr. Garstang, Mr. Roettgen, and Mrs. Paterson teach the band all through the school year. This band taught her many important life lessons. Thanks Gina, for letting us know why you're with the band.
