While looking for my very favorite elem/high school band director, Bob Cinq-mars, I found this thread. He taught at our schools in O'Fallon IL for a couple years in the early 60s, and was the best! During the short time he was there, he put together many music ensembles for the students and led our band to set amazing state records. He inspired so many of us.... O'Fallon has never forgotten. (That band is now one of the leading bands in the nation). After he left, I wrote to him, and he responded with a very nice note, which I still have, along with several pictures in my yearbook.
