Dear Parade Division:
I am writing this letter in support of the Windsor High School (WHS) Marching Band of Windsor,
The WHS Marching band is a talented group of young Americans with an accomplished resume. WHS has won many regional and
state awards, including "Top Musical Performance," Top General Effect award," and a State Marching
Band Championship award in 2008.
Beyond their exemplary array of talent, the Windsor High School Marching Band illuminates a special
story of dedication, courage and optimism.
The tenacity and enthusiasm of this group is as contagious as their music. Please choose the Windsor High School Marching Band for the honor of performing in President-elect Obama's Inaugural Parade.
