Portland Highlights

Pat Wolfe ('74, Accounting) has always looked back fondly on his years at OSU and particularly the time spent marching in the OSU band and playing in the basketball pep band. Even though these days he spend more time at his financial and investment management roles, he found he just couldn't give up his trumpet. In 1984 Pat became a charter member of the One More Time Around Marching Band, made up of former high school, college and military marching band members who, like Pat, just want to keep on playing, and marching. The band has played everywhere from the Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade to the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, CA. And Pat's not the only Beaver in the band. Brad Townsend, OSU Director of Athletic Bands, is in his first year as the Director of the OMTAAMB. He follows in the footsteps of Mary Bengle, also an OSU alum, who directed the band along with her husband, Jay for the past 20 years. The band's first director and co-founder was Bill Chisholm, OSU Class of 1972, who directed the band for its first several years. Even though the band is open to anyone with a minimum of high school experience, it is plain to see that OSU has been a driving force in a band that has provided joy to many people for these past 28 years.
