This must be devastating... I know if our trailer was burned down I would just die inside. Which is why Grafton's helping to raise money for Powhatan. Considering we have over 220 People I think we should be able to donate a lot. I hope so.

When my mother told me about the event my heart dropped. I would always look foward to seeing you guys in competitions and I always cheered you on in competitions. I plan to send a donation if possible and possibly donate one of my instruments. Hang in there and Good luck this season.

Please advertise where donations can be made and to whom on your band website. THere are many ex-band parents out there from other schools who feel your loss. We know what it takes to run a band. I am sure there will be many who want to donate. Keep that music in your hearts!

If they had been using a better trailer and one that wasn't worn out, so the body of the trailer would rub the tires, all this would have never happened.

I hope in the feature, once they beg, borrow and steal all the instruments, uniforms and whatever they may think they need, that the school will buy a decent trailer so this will not happen again!!!

Well, Joey. It would be nice to have unlimited funds to by the best of everything. But, the school system barely has the funds to allow us to use the school buses to go to competitions much less buy a new trailer. Since you seem to be master of all knowledge and backhanded insults, why don't stroke a check for a new trailer? Or better yet put in hundreds of hours volunteering to raise the money for a new one...most of the instruments and all of the uniforms are on loan until the end of the season. it seems you only read selectively, as well. Ignorance is intolerable.
