As director of the FM Golden Notes New Horizons Band, I would like to thank you for your wonderful coverage on a wonderful man. ("A Surprise Serenade" published Aug. 8)
The smile on Jim Kinlaw's face says it all. I was especially impressed by how your photographer David Samson and reporter Kim Hyatt took a mountain of photos and information and sifted it down into a well-focused and succinct article celebrating a man we love.
I would also like to put in a plug for the band. We are always looking for new members. We don't require playing skills, only that you are over 50, love music, and love having a good time.
We are in particular need of trumpets, clarinets, and percussion at this time. If interested, please contact our band manager Myla Alsaker at (701) 205-7857.
