At the town Town of Hanover's Muster Day (Memorial Day) at the Old Meeting House, the HHS Band accompanied the audience in the singing of America The Beautiful and the Star Spangled Banner. Boy Scouts read the Pledge of Allegiance and Girl Scouts read the Gettysburg Address. Then the Scouts led the audience to the cemetery while the band played the anthems of the Army, Navy , Coast Guard, Air Force and Marines. Two buglers ended the ceremony with Taps. HHS Band Director Norman Wolfe writes: "It's a very simple but memorable occasion and I am lately humbled by the large number of band students who participate. Sixty student volunteers took part, or about 75% of the Band, double the number from a few years ago."
