The Husky Marching Band returned to central Washington June 2 to say thank you to the Grant County community after a bus crash there last Thanksgiving.

Hundreds of people filled the Quincy High School gymnasium for an hour-long thank you event that included heartfelt speeches, band performances and culminated with a community cookout.
