Recognition of Richard. G. Wells
On October 7, 2017, Richard G. Wells was honored at the Owen J. Roberts Cavalcade Show of Bands for his years of service as a Music Educator. After nine marching bands performed that evening, Mr. Wells conducted the combined sounds of the Kutztown University Marching Unit and the Owen J. Roberts High School Marching Band. A super grand finale followed with all nine bands performing Shut Up & Dance.
During the evening, Mr. Wells was presented with a plaque bearing photos of both the Kutztown University Marching Unit and the Owen J. Roberts Marching Band. The dedication reads: "In dedication to Richard G. Wells, Director of Band, Owen J. Roberts High School 1961-1968 and Kutztown University 1968-1997. Thank you for your faithful years of service, for sharing your love of music and all that you have done to inspire thousands of students over the years. ~ Will Rapp, Jeff Oxenford, Dan Neuenschwander, Todd Mengel.

Summer Picnic 2011
Thanks to all alumni and KUMU members who joined us for the annual summer picnic on June 5th. Here are just a few pictures from the event!
We had perfect weather this year for homecoming, no rain! Over 100 alumni and their families joined us throughout the day for homecoming this year. We started off the day with a field rehearsal with the KUMU, followed by a GOBS tailgating party behind the stadium. Alumni and their families then joined in the stands to support the Golden Bears. Halftime was a huge treat as the Alumni Band along with the KUMU performed music of the Beatles. The day concluded with a post game social, held in the Georgian Room, where we honored Richard G. Wells for all that he has done for the music programs at Kutztown University.
2010 Summer Picnic
Even though we had a rainy day, the 2010 GOBS Picnic was a great success. Alumni had the opportunity to meet and chat with current KUMU students who had just completed their Read Through Day session. Thanks to all of the GOBS who were able to make it!
