WILMINGTON — The Wilmington High School Band Club continued its long-standing tradition by hosting its 60th Annual Homecoming Chili Supper prior to last Friday night’s homecoming game.
The dinner officially began as WHS’ marching band, the Pride of Wilmington, entered the auditeria and began its performance for Hurricane fans gathered from far and near. Students, staff, community members, and returning alumni rallied together to kick off the evening that would end at Alumni Field with a 58-22 victory over Washington Court House.
Working behind the scenes were members of the Band Club dedicated to supporting the Wilmington Schools music program. According to Angie Bahr, first vice president over fundraising, “The Band Club is proud to host one of the strongest traditions in the community.”
The Pride of Wilmington is recognized as one of the best performing bands in the state and has qualified once again to compete at the Ohio Music Education Association State Marching Band Competition Nov. 4 at the University of Dayton.
