Website changes

Good Morning,

I have recently taken over website duties for the Marquette City Band. I am in the process of realigning some things and making (mostly) cosmetic improvements to the site. All the previous photos, videos, posters, etc are still available, but there may be some occasional interruptions while things are shuffled around. If you need access to a file, and are unable to locate it, please leave a comment below and I will get back to you as I am able.

Thank you for your patronage and patience.
