"Incredible! The kids were great!" Those are Director Barry Enzman's words, spoken when he returned on Monday with the Glenelg High School Band and Marching Unit from its annual spring trip.

This year they participated in the Orlando Music Festival, a competition among outstanding high school bands from all over the United States.

The Glenelg High School Band and Marching Unit returned with 15 trophies, winning every category in which they competed.

Organizers separate the competition into divisions, based on the difficulty of the music the bands play. Glenelg's jazz, concert and parade groups won their divisions. Above that, the bands won best overall in jazz, concert and parade.

The jazz band won best trombone and rhythm section awards and best sight reading. The concert band won best sight reading. In the parade competition, the silks and drill team won best auxiliary units, and both units finished first in their individual competitions.

At the end of the awards ceremony, the officials honored the group that showed the best esprit de corps. The Glenelg students won that trophy too.

"All this is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of the students," Mr. Enzman said. "They are well known on a national level and represent Glenelg High School and the community favorably with their high level of personal and musical excellence."

For Mr. Enzman, the trophies are wonderful, but it's the process he enjoys.

"When they're playing well, that's when I get my kicks," he said.

Congratulations to the 1993 Howard County All-Elementary Band and to band directors Wayne Binder and Frank Owens. Their concerts on Friday and Tuesday were very impressive. The students played beautiful music flawlessly, and their audiences were tapping their toes and thoroughly enjoying the outstanding performances.

Megan Rynarzewski, club reporter for the Daisy Agriculture 4-H Club, sends thanks to the families, friends and neighbors who came out in the rain to help make the recent spaghetti dinner a success.

Glenelg's 4-H Club participated in Visual Presentation Day on March 6. Three club members received champion ratings.

Kate Kelly, Regina Gouker, and Marissa Popkins were named champions for the presentation of a food dish they each made. They had to cite the nutritional properties of the ingredients and the product and explain how the food was prepared. These three young cooks will go to the regional Food and Nutrition Day on April 24.

County 4-H Fashion Revue Day is April 17. Five Glenelg Club girls have made outfits to model for the judges that day.

That makes it easy to wonder how they had time to bake bread last weekend. Each of the 20 Glenelg 4-H Club members made a loaf of bread to donate to the needy. White yeast bread, applesauce raisin bread and banana bread were among the loaves to emerge from local ovens. The Glenelg 4-H Club calls this Community Bread Workshop Day, and members do it regularly.
