Post-crash hospitality rewarded

A bus containing a marching band and spirit squad from the University of Washington rolled off I-90 near the small town of George, Washington, in November 2018, on its way to a popular matchup between that university and rival school Washington State. While 45 students were treated for minor injuries at a local hospital, the town pitched in—setting up a warming shelter at the elementary school, bringing blankets and even sharing turkey and stuffing from their Thanksgiving dinners. The Husky Marching Band returned this summer, months later, to say thank you—by way of band concerts, speeches and shared community cookout.
