An annual event in the life of our Tiger Bands is the TBLE&B [aka
Tiger Band Leadership Event and Barbecue. This year we held the
TBLE&B on Friday, September 20 and as the weather was looking a
bit sketchy - used Band Central as the venue.
The goals of the TBLE&B are for the Band Scholars to get to know
each other better, enhance their teamwork skills and expand
their leadership capacity. A good time was had by all.

food. Thanks and Thanks to our Friends Dee and Earnest for
preparing the food and Friends Josh, Miguel and all of our
Sodexo Buddies for their continued support of the Band Scholars
and their desire to eat.
Also, absolutely no Band Event is complete without the presence
of some of our Band Friends and we were tickled that Miss Sheila
and Grandson David, Mr & Mrs. Lobitz, Coach Briggs and Family,
Coach McCloskey, Dr. Burnette and Acting President Blevins were
part of our 2013 TBLE&B. Thank-You.
Thanks & Thanks
