The Bel Air Independence Day Committee recently recognized the C. Milton Wright High School Marching Band, winners of the Harford County High School July 4th Parade award.

Representatives from the band accepted a monetary prize and the thanks of the committee at Bel Air Town Hall on July 27.

The Mustangs also retained for a second straight year the Harford County High School July 4th Parade Trophy, recognizing the parade's best local high school band.

"The idea behind the Harford County High School July 4th Parade award, which we started three years ago, is to reward the effort and organization it takes for a local high school to put a marching band together in the middle of the summer, when school is not in session and the seniors have all disappeared," parade chairman Michael Blum said in a news release. "It is my dream, of course, to have a parade that includes a band from EVERY high school in Harford — we haven't reached that point yet, but I haven't given up hope!"

It's not too early to sign up to be a part of the 2012 parade, the theme for which will be "The Land of the Free!" Applications are now online at the committee's Web site, http://www.belairjuly4.org.
