    As has been their tradition for more than 20 years, the National Capital Band of The Salvation Army (Bandmaster James Anderson) kicked off their season with a rehearsal retreat at Camp Happyland in central Virginia, held 9-10 September. This year, there was a bit of a twist to the retreat, as the band actually had an engagement on Saturday evening, instead of simply having a rehearsal weekend. The band played at Hurkamp Park in the historic city of Fredericksburg, Virginia in support of a fund-raising event for the local Salvation Army corps. Although the band was reduced in number as several members were involved in relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina, the event was still a good beginning to the season, which will feature a weekend celebrating the band's 80 years of continuous service, to be held in November.
