Our plate fundraiser this year was a huge success again!  Thanks to all who continue to support the Lyford band!

Byron Engle — Band Clinician

On Friday, March 4, the Lyford bands were happy to have Mr. Byron Engle come out and listen to our bands rehearse.  Mr. Engle is a retired director and was the Lyford head director in the early 1980’s.  We work with him now as our instrument repairman, and of course, he’s always happy to come out and help the Lyford bands on their continued path to success!
