Hamilton High School Band Plays ‘Music to Buy Christmas Trees By’
After school Wednesday, members of the Hamilton High School band, under the direction of Shawn Thacker, bundled up and met at Steve Boshae’s Christmas Tree lot to play a set of Christmas Carols.
Why Steve’s lot? Well, for the past bunch of years, the lot has donated a dollar from every tree purchased to the Hamilton High music department. Thacker gets the band over at least once during the Christmas season to play music as a “thank you” to Steve and the Boshae family for their generosity.
And the weather was cooperative this year. A stiff breeze, but blue sky and a 50-degree temperature. We talked to Thacker and and Boshae.
The tree lot is in the Albertson’s parking lot in Hamilton.
