THANK YOU! The WDMB works very hard and the West Deptford Band Parents do too. Thank you to everyone for rearranging schedules and finding the time to make the rain date Home Show happen. With out the parents, this is not possible. It was wonderful to give our seniors their final Home Show and remain dry. We also want to put a shout out to Mrs. Patty Watts and the WDBP Board for organizing 2 shows, one on Saturday and one on Monday. Thank you to all of our alumni and alumni parents for pitching in where they could.
