Whitcomb.  They are from left to right: Jim Hines ('64), treasurer; Carolyn Webb ('65), secretary; Wayne Boger ('64), president; and Charlie Sneed ('64), vice president." "Under the direction of Mr. James P. Wilson, Jr., the Typhoon Marching Band has brought many honors to NNHS.  Competing against bands in Virginia and other states, it has won four consecutive trophies as the finest band
at the Winchester Apple Blossom Festival.
In addition to practices each morning, night rehearsals are required in preparation for concerts and parades.  Selling birthday calendars in the fall to help raise funds for the Winchester trip was the major fund raising project for the band."
"Adding to the splendor
of the Typhoon Marching Band
are the Herald Trumpeteers. 
They are from left to right: Jim Hines ('64),
Van Rowell ('65), and Charlie Snead ('64)."
