In the early 30's, a band was started in Riplinger, Unity Township, Clark Co., WI. It was conducted by E. Tabor. Some of the members were Ben, Fred, Ellis, and Frank Riplinger, Joe Prien, Gottlieb Schultz, Carl Dallman, Spin Harvey, Al Justman, Ed Fait, Adolph Gruenhaggen, Wally Seefeldt, Reuben Rex, Edgar, Art, and Helmuth Kuester. The Band played for the 4th of July parades, picnics, and concerts. Much of the band's activities raised money for school, along with basket socials and dances.

Do you have any more info on this? I'm pretty sure that I know who Carl Dallman is and how he's related to me and I know how Adolph Gruenhagen is related, and I know my family is and was living in Riplinger and surrounding areas. This would be very interesting to me. Thanks Jason Dallman
