One step closer to purchasing new uniforms

What an exciting day it was on Sept. 9 when 11 bands representing eight counties descended upon Franklin-Simpson High School for the 49th Annual Wildcat Marching Band Invitational.

Much hard work and planning went into this event, which brought hundreds of individuals out to watch a truly impressive show featuring the best high school musicians and performers from Kentucky and Tennessee. Money raised from the event will help move us one step closer to realizing our dream of purchasing new uniforms for our Wildcat Marching Band.

Words cannot express the gratitude for the community supporters who added to a monumental success. Without the following contributors, this musical extravaganza could not have taken place: Bojangles, Kona Ice, Franklin Police Department, Principal Schlosser, Principal Conyers, Simpson County Board of Education, Jailer Eric Vaughn, The Quarterback Club, Robert White, Pyramid Prints, Franklin Favorite, WKFN, Crocker Farm Winery and Vineyard, Crocker Animal Hospital, Crafton Funeral Home, Franklin Precision Industry, Franklin-Simpson Arts Council, Franklin-Simpson Chamber of Commerce, MCP Orientation and Mobility Services, Tim and Staci Nelson, Sheldon's Express Pharmacy, VFW Harry Reed Post 5706, City of Franklin, Compton & Compton Eye care, Bullington Patton Enterprises, Doug's Auto Sales, Drobocky Orthodontics, Napa Auto Parts of Franklin, New Mather Metals, Toyo Automotive Parts, Vermont Thread Gage, Wal Mart, Priceless IGA, El Potrero, Pizza Hut, Sol Azteca, KFC, Piggly Wiggly, Cash Express, Oasis, Country Oven Bakery, Zaxby's, Minit Mart, Franklin-Simpson County Ambulance Service, Rachel Janitch, Meijer, and Oak Tree Awards.

A special thanks goes to the FSHS Band Alumni and Parents who devoted countless hours to ensure the event ran smoothly. The generosity and unselfish acts of community support for our Band continue to amaze, for you realize that it is so much more than just marching band. Thank you for helping to enrich and cultivate the minds of Simpson County's youth through music.
