Comments:  After the first successful year of the North Hastings Community Band, I heard about the New Horizons organization and think that it would be a great resource for further band development here in North Hastings. Our entire area has a long history of successful school band programs, and with more and more retirees and former music students moving back to the area, the New Horizons model should work very well here. I look forward to examining and utilizing the resources that New Horizons provides for “getting the word out” and building membership and passion for the organization here in North Hastings, Ontario, Canada
