Bader has been blending since fifth grade, when he decided to join band. Watching football games when he was younger and seeing the band out on the field pushed Bader to be a part of that group, which a lot of his friends were doing, too.

“We take our dogs wherever we go on planes, on boats,” Pam Schnarre said. “We’re regular campers, and we take our cat camping with us, too.”
