2005 Reunion Band
multi-generational band performed for the Saturday evening
program at St.Paul's Lutheran Church for the 2005 RHS
alumni all-class reunion.
The group accompanied a large crew of cheerleaders and the crowd for the "Rolfe Loyalty." Later the band concluded the evening with another rousing round of the school song. The music certainly added spirit, delight, and nostalgia to the occasion.
We give a heartfelt thanks to all the musicians and their director, Marilee Kleespies. She is a Nationally Ceritfied Teacher of Music, Rolfe area piano teacher, organist, substitute teacher, and is married to Bill Kleespies, who owns and manages Bill's Food Store.
