KUG II [aka Keep Us Grrr...ing] Band Dinner
Friday, February 3, 2012
we were tickled to continue a tradition we began last year - the KUG
Dinner Series - and as such, the Band Scholars worked with great
diligence for and towards the success of KUG II. The evening proved
to be a delightful gathering of Band Families and Band Friends as we
celebrated the Band Scholars and our Tiger Bands at Georgetown
Transforming the Montgomery Cafe into KUG
mode is no small feat - and the Band Scholars worked most of
Friday afternoon to ensure all was in readiness for the evening's
event. We would like to also extend a very special Thanks & Thanks
to Mr. Josh Eckman and Sodexo Dining Services for partnering with
us for this special event.
All of the Band Scholars pitched in to
help with all aspects of KUG II planning and preparation - but we
extend a special thanks to the BLT [aka Band Leadership Team], the
Worker Bees - and especially Fluffy, Miss Stuck, Loganoli, JEW and
A very special aspect of KUG II were our
