The Trimble Local Marching Band recently received the gift of music in the form of a dozen instruments thanks in part to the effort of two sisters.

Jean Cunningham and Jan Hodson approached Trimble Marching Band Director Dennis Ullman earlier this year about the band’s need for instruments.

“We grew up in Glouster before our parents moved us to The Plains in 1966. We had been in the band at Trimble Local and it was a character-building experience for us, so we know the value that music and marching band can have in the life of children,” said Hodson.
