Honoring Frank Reis

Frank Reis, clarinetist with the Hayward Municipal Band, was honored at last Sunday's concert. Reis is retiring from the band after 57 years in the clarinet section. (In fact, he has spent every Father's Day for more than half a century on the bandstand in Memorial Park.) Reis, whose two sons also play clarinet in the band, was given a certificate by Hayward Mayor Michael Sweeney and a plaque from director Kathy Maier and the band. He also led the band in its final number of the day, The Stars and Stripes Forever. Some pictures of the event:
