this uniform? It was from the Tyrone Area High School's Golden
Eagles Marching Band. In the years 1965 - 1966, Jimmy Maney II proudly
wore it as a member of the band. Sadly, he lost his life in an
auto crash in 1970, and his family has presented this complete uniform
to the Tyrone Area Historical Society.
quick change artist! That's what Ron Hess was in the early
80s! He would march for the Tyrone Area High School Band at the
front of town parades. Ron wore the uniform of the Tyrone Gardner
Guards underneath the high school uniform, and then he'd run back to the
beginning of the parade and catch up with the Guards and finish the
parade again. Ron says he learned a lot of fine musical
skills in the Guards, that have encouraged him all these years. He
is currently working on a Master's Degree in Music Composition at the
University of Maryland. He and his family have donated this
uniform to the Tyrone Area Historical Society, and Maribel Hildebrand, a
volunteer with the society, notes the perfect condition of the uniform.
Can anyone top Ron's accomplishment?
