A spokesman for t li e club says it will act as custodian for the band's instruments, uni- forms and music until Septem- ber of next year, at which time the club will consider possible "reinstatement of the senior band under revised circum- stances." Thc club cites difficulties in the operation of the band hi re- cent years as the reason for its position. A study has shown that a minimum operating bud- get of a year is needed to maintain a band with CO ac- tive members. In addition, (he band itself w o u 1 d have to raise an un- stated amount of money in or- .der lo meet rising costs. Another problem is uni- forms a complete set is needed if the band is to con- tinue as a "respectable show band representing the commun- ity.'' There has also been a drop in band membership, attri- buted to competition from the "fine marching and concert bands in several of the junior and senior high schools." The majority of the bandsmen are 12 years of age or under. The Kiwanis Club feels en- couragement should given to these youngsters, but it qucs-j lions 'if this is best done through a community-oriented marching band. The club is willing to loan instruments to groups able to utilize them during the coming year. A club spokesman said it had been announced by the Lethbridge Community Band concerning use of the instru- ments, but no arrangements Iisd yet been made. The Lethbridge Community Band under the direction of Frank Hosek Sr., who for many y e a r s conducted the Kiwanis Band, is currently practicing three times a week in the Bow- man Arts Centre.
