The ASAPH Brass Band plays in the annual Flag Day parade in our little community. It’s May 18th. We march to the Haitian national anthem.
In June, we were invited to participate in a Sunday morning “march” for the Church Of God’s annual conference in Vieux-Bourg, Aquin. Vieux-Bourg is on the national highway #2. It’s what we call the ‘hard road’. The plan was that policemen would be there and we would use one lane of the road for our evangelical parade early Sunday morning, hopefully drawing people to the big church service.
Well, the police didn’t show up. SO, the parade turned into walking along the street. Our band had prepared for a street parade, not walking single file down the side of a highway. SO, it didn’t go as planned. But we played our four songs (over and over), and they sounded decent. It was a great experience for the kids. We attended morning services in the big church along the highway, and they fed us afterward. We came home proud and fulfilled.
