This year’s Dukes marching band is preparing for another great season. The Wellington musicians hit the basics this summer as an influx of new marchers joined the band’s ranks.
Out of 30 kids, director Toni Novotny said a third of the group has never marched before.
She said she’s already seen progress among the ranks and is happy to see veteran players take the lead.
The band had its first official performance last night at the Wellington Recreation Park in front of their parents.
