To the Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the bands that took part in the "Battle of the Bands."

What a wonderful turnout!

I would also like to thank all the generous sponsors who donated items for the raffle, the employees and family members that worked so diligently selling and preparing all the events. Pepsi and Walmart. What can I say? You rock.

The variety of music was great and we held off the rain when it looked so close to letting loose. I was so touched when at last, the final performance was on and the raindrops started. The bands, these young rockers, heavy metal, country singers, old rock bands, united with umbrellas and formed a cover for the last performer. Yes, he finished his set.

Here, they competed against one another and when needed, united as one group of musicians. I cannot say enough for the courtesy and respect shown by these young people.

Last I want to thank the wonderful people who showed up and donated their hard-earned money to go to the Brazil City Police Department K-9 Unit.
