Marching the Blues away
Bulloch band members work to raise funds for D.C. trip

Along with many of his bandmates, Statesboro High baritone player Tyler Campbell, 17, tucks a dryer sheet into his hat to battle insects in the muggy evening heat while finishing out Thursday's March-a-thon.
Members of the Bulloch Blues Marching Band marched for 12 hours during a fundraising event Thursday. The March-a-thon was held to help raise money to send the 200 members of the countywide band to a Washington, D.C. parade in April, a trip that could cost more than $100,000. Blues members come from the bands at Portal Middle High School, Southeast Bulloch High School and Statesboro High School.
