Band Halloween Party
The annual Halloween Party was a night to remember. The
costumes were very freaky, and some very scary, which made the
night full of excitement. The members of CMENC present a raffle to
cut of band member Zach Dobo’s hair. The winner of the raffle was
Chris Jones, and Zach’s hair is being donated to Lock for Love.
The sister of Tau Beta Sigma also stepped at the party, which for me
personally is one of the best times I have seen the sister of Epsilon
Sound of the South News Xi step. Congratulations!!! Lastly the winner of the costume contest
was Jay Carlen as “Quail Boy” from Nickelodeon’s “Doug”
The “Sound” has been extremely busy since our last news letter.

bands normal performance schedule at Trojan Football games, the
band was featured in 6 exhibition performances. Three of them
