Front Porch Parade
Living a block from St. Mary's on Second Street, I can't tell you how many times, as a small boy, I'd run to the window or go sit on the front porch when I heard the band coming. For all the annoyance it might have brought to the neighbors, it was pure excitement for me. To have a personal parade come down my street at almost anytime, especially in the summer months, was too good to be true.Pictured from circa 1964 is flutist Joann Sonnleitner and drummer Harvey Draheim.
