Ranger High School Band and Siebert Singers from Eastland Siebert Elementary School, and the Cisco Boy Scout Troop 101 ALL did a Great Job! Band & Singers entertained during set-up and then performed magnificently for their part on the program. Cisco Boy Scout Troop 101 representatives sure did as well when it came time to Post The Colors. “You All Made Us Proud!”
