We have one more story for Mr. Warne. We were down in Madison SD on the south end of Main Street in the late 1990’s watching the parade, when a band turned onto Main, loud and proud. There were two women in front of us and one said to the other “Whose band is that?” As the band got closer, the other woman said, “Oh that is Lake Preston! I guess we know who is going to win the B title!”. Both of these women were wearing Sioux Falls Roosevelt coats!
So, Mr. Warne and the Lake Preston marching band had the respect of many of the area schools. Congratulations on your retirement.
