Ridgewood has a hippie theme, Co- shocton is currently working on their theme, and River View’s theme is the constellation of the stars, which will in- clude Ursa Major, the constellation of the Great Bear to tie in with River View being the Black Bears. “We had a blast Sunday decorating the bus,” said Bourne. “We were out there all afternoon. There were at least a dozen kids out there.” Coshocton’s bus will be decorated by their art students. “Mary approached our treasurer and asked if we would be interested in doing it,” said Nancy Zeigler, president of the Coshocton Music Boosters. “The art de- partment is doing most of the decorating. I think the kids are excited about it.” Zeigler said the money collected in their box during the competition will go toward purchasing new band uniforms. “This is a great bunch of kids this year,” said Zeigler. “I’m really proud of them. Their dedication to everything that’s going on right now is amazing. It’s easy to work hard for them because you know they’ll appreciate it.” River View decorated their bus Monday evening, Sept. 23. “They’re [the students] starting to get excited,” said Keith Watson, director of the River View band. “I think it’ll be fun.” FROM PAGE 12 Open 7 days a week at 11 am 400 North Whitewoman St. 740-622-4001 CASUAL DINING • PATIO SEATING Located in Historic Roscoe Village CONSULTATION • SALES • CUSTOM APPLICATION PROUD 4-H AND FFA SPONSOR TMK BAKERSVILLE HAS AN ON-GOING COMMITMENT TO WORKING WITH FARMERS.
