"The N. N. H. S. Senior Band, under the direction of Mr. James P. Wilson, contributes much to our school spirit.  They perform at football games during the football season as well as participating in pep assemblies, concerts, and parades.  In 1962 the band once again made an outstanding showing at the Apple Blossom Festival.  Many thanks go
to the band for their hard work during the year."
