The Lucille Jordan Award 1964
Isn't it lovely? Who would ever think they would find such loveliness at the Goodwill?? Me, apparently, as that's where we headed when we found out we needed a "white elephant" for the end-o-the-year band parent party. We found it waaaaay up at the top of the shelves where we were digging around for an hour or so--I swear Lucille heard our prayers to find something good.
So, off it went and was delivered to a well deserving, unsuspecting Sue, who had a death grip on that bad-boy all night. And when another parent tried to snag it, he got the evil death stare--and needless to say he went for the lame-o box of perfume instead. Yeah, the trophy is that good.
We honored Lucille Jordan by declaring it the new MVP Band Parent Traveling Trophy. Each year, it must be passed down to the outstanding band parent of the marching season. Tough to win? Certainly.
But even tougher to pry out of Sue's grip.
