Rose Parade 2003

Amanda Wellcome, daughter of Dale and Cheryl (Rhynard) Wellcome was a participant in the 114th Rose Parade in Pasadena, CA on January 1, 2003.  She is a freshman flute player in the award winning James Logan Band of Union City, CA.  (San Francisco area)  The band and color guard marches approximately 300 members.

Her parents, Dale and Cheryl Wellcome, grandparents, Loren and Ruth Rhynard and her Aunt Cheri (Mrs. Duane Rhynard) were in the stands cheering her on.

The 5.5 mile, 2+ hour march was a challenge which the band members accomplished with only 2 dropouts.  When asked her opinion of the grueling march, her comment was "I'll never do that again!" which was likely the sentiments of many.

In march of 2003 the James Logan Band traveled to Long Beach, California to participate in a band music festival.  Amanda is first chair flute in the concert band.  She played a piccolo solo on one of the pieces.  Her grandparents, Loren and Ruth Rhynard, enjoyed hearing an excellent performance.

Amanda plans on being in the band next year.  Rumor has it that the band may participate in the two mile long Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
