MCHS senior selected to all-state orchestra
Craig — Congratulations to Moffat County High School senior Mitch Romney for his selection to the Colorado All-State Orchestra.
Romney auditioned in October and was the only one of four students from MCHS to be selected. He is in Fort Collins this weekend to play with others from around the state.
MCHS students named to regional jazz band
Congratulations to Moffat County High School students Logan Smith, Bekah Bird, Eryn Leonard, Marie Bolton and Ryan Secules, who were selected to participate in the Northwest Colorado Honor Jazz Band.
Participants are nominated by band directors, and fellows at Jazz Aspen Snowmass select the band from the nominations. Clinicians are brought in to work with the four bands for two days. The event culminates with a concert.
I spent this past Saturday morning preparing for Sunday’s lunch branding — at least what I could get done early. I cooked pasta and boiled eggs. I made a gelatin salad. I decided to bake a banana cake, a family favorite, for dessert.
