I've lived in this area where now in O'Fallon I've lived in O'Fallon probably for the last close to thirty years today I'm a financial planner and before that I was a probation officer I'm blessed to have a family that allows me to indulge any activities that I like like my drum and bugle corps career why is it fun for me I would have to say that because of my love of music it gives me an opportunity to continue to play I can't tell a fib I really love the fraternal part of it and the camaraderie that I get from being around a lot of the guys that I was in junior drum and bugle corps and we've continued to play and do it for over 40 years it's really a very strong bond and it's very noticeable you can see it when you look at them walking down the street

we're gather on weekends we do a lot of things together as a group and being a Brotherhood like that has been a just a very close-knit group of guys when we're out in the public and we perform and we do our antics if you will it's enjoyable we entertain it's a lot of Holi we wouldn't do it if it wasn't fun they're taking me on teaching me how to read music and teaching me the notes and hopefully in several months I'll be able to play some songs the only thing that would probably keep us from from playing as if we were bedridden so basically as long as we can sit up and take note we'll probably be playing our horns if they don't notice their fright away we play louder you know so we want people to notice us we want people to participate in what we're doing and want people to have fun and that's what makes it all worthwhile that's that's the fun that we have you
