Thanks for the handbook. I'm sure it will be helpful for those looking for program renewal ideas. Are you going to Midwest this year? If so, Ed Nagel has a group to join. Let us know.
Again thanks.

Hi David Apple. My nams is Dr. Tom Silliman,formerly of Frederick County,MD.I retired from there in 1989 after 32 yrs. From 1966 to 1983 I was music supervisor for the county and was active in MMEA serving as Pres.in the late 70's. After retiring to Florida in 1989, I was a MS band director for 13 yrs(1992-2005) and am currently a visiting woodwind instructor at the Osceola School for the Arts, home of Russ Weaver, MSBanddirector"s founder. While active in MD,I played oboe with the Frederick Symphony. I see from your bio that you were with them from 86 to 88. Perhaps we were in at the same time, but to tell the truth I,m not sure! I"m going to become the 4th member of your group. Would like very much to hear from you. Regards, Tom Silliman.
