Turning Paper Tubes into Trees


Over the years, Yazoo has donated tubes to local companies and schools to help bring their creations to life.  The possibilities are endless with our paper tubes and high school students are taking our tubes to the next level this football season.

This year, we donated paper tubes to the South Western Marching Band and with their creative minds, they produced trees for their halftime and showcase performances.  South Western has 71 marching band members this season and their show is titled HAUNTED.  Bill Kirsch, South Western Band Director, says “this show depicts a journey through a haunted forest, hence the purpose of the trees.  The tress move throughout the show to create the illusion that the band is entering and traveling through the forest.” Kirsch continues to add “the trees are absolutely incredible and are a HUGE hit with our show!”

The band performs at all home and away games as well as competitions, taking the trees and all of their other props with them.  This year, they are attending six competitions, including their own marching band showcase that has been held by the South Western Boosters for 30 years as well as championships on November 12th in Hershey, PA.

We look forward to seeing our paper tubes showcased as haunted trees in their program this year and wish them the best of luck with competing!
