Dear. friends, Our clergymen and our teachers strive devotedly to build honesty, fairness, kindness and personal worth into the character of our children. They efforts will be in vain unless we parents and citizens support them with ethical and moral behavior in our daily lives. Our nation's moral fibre has been laboriously built thru the integrity of generations - it can rapidly falter and fail unless we maintain high standards of conduct. Respectfully, movements, Naval dancers, and activities designed to keep entire families occupied and par- ticipating in history. Children are welcome .and are en- couraged by the band members to come. The audience is always invited backstage after a performance to meet the members of the band, and to chat with the of- fleers about history and music. Prior to the conclusion of the performance the Park visitors and neighbors of the local communities are invited to join the band in a chorus of the Battle Hymn of the Republic.
