Do Madison County bands have spirit? Yes, they do. To the tune of 15 state fair marching band championships. That's more than any county in the state. And it's indicative of the cultural significance of marching bands in our area.
In this issue of Madison, Stu Hirsch chronicles the marching band experiences of three Anderson High School students. All three speak of the sacrifices they've made to be part of a state championship contender, and of the motivation provided by the rich history of local bands.
Elsewhere in this issue of Madison, sit down for a special tea at a new Elwood establishment, take a trip back in time to ride in a roller coaster at the Mounds Amusement Park, race in the sulky with a champion harness horse driver at Hoosier Park and quilt with the ladies of the Redbud Guild.
