A Letter from Mr. Raschkes....
(July 2004)

Dear ECR Band Alumni,

I regret that I cannot be at the re-union. It is hard to believe that between 23 to 31 years have passed since you were in the ECR Band.

It was truly a great experience for me to have known all of you. We worked very hard together for a common purpose - striving for musical excellence.

In the process of that striving - we have bonded into lifelong friendships with irreplaceable memories. It is hard to believe that all of you are older than my age - when I was your band director. Yet I still think of you now as I did then - with great fondness and appreciation for you unfitness and talents.

Let me take this opportunity to thank all of you for your loyalty and commitment that you have shown to the ECR band program and to me as your director during the time that you were students in the ECR Band and Orchestra. Some of you have sent e-mails to me expressing regret at your misbehavior during those times - when you were my students in the band. I truly have forgotten such indiscretions. What I cannot forget, however, are the wonderful memories I have of each of you, the experiences we have had together and most of all - the transformation of the ECR Band into a family unit. As we live our lives out, raise our kids and try to provide for them as best we can. Let us not forget that time in our lives when we worked so hard and unselfishly for an idealistic goal, as exemplified by the man from LaMancha: "ECR Band - No. 1 RAH !"

Thanks Barrie and the reunion committee for organizing the reunion. I regret that I cannot be there this time. But I will do my best to be at the next one in another 5 years and hope to see you all then.
Karl Raschkes
