Ross Purcell, S.C.A.M.P. band


entertainers A

great bunch of musically inclined volunteers really know how to have fun. The members make up the band S.C.A.M.P., an acronym for Senior Center Adult Musical Performers. Members of the band include: Ross Purcell who plays saxophone and clarinet; Chris Retert who plays keyboard; Vern Voight on the baritone trumpet; Wally Leith plays the saxophone, Ralph Leisten on the accordian; Bill Breitzman on tuba; Wayne Goin on guitar; Keith Olson on the trumpet, Devon Scherck on saxophone and clarinet; Tyrone Wisdom on bass guitar; Fritz Krueger does vocals; Kate StaleyHamm also vocals; Edi Moore on the flute; Lin Leeds on the trumpet, and last but not least, the newest member, John Oberg, also does vocals. Ross joked, “We call the accordian our bagpipe with pleats.” Ross noted, “The band was officially organized about six and a half years ago by myself and Gregg Wood (now deceased). At first Gregg wanted to form a chorus,” but it was a band that it turned out to be.

Story by Lois A. Pflum | Photos submitted Ross was persistent about what to call the newly formed band, and the name S.C.A.M.P. was chosen. He continued, “With the acronym, people will remember us as a musical entity.” “We are all members of the Fond du Lac Senior Center, with the exception of Devon. All our members are volunteers and half of our members are over 80! I’m 82, Wally is 85, Fritz is 87, and Devon is 178 — jokingly added — months, that is.” Ross added, “We enjoy Devon. He helps us out carrying our music stands, equipment and some of our instruments.” Devon is not one bit daunted by the difference in the ages of his fellow band members. Ross laughed as he commented, “We all have senior moments … except Devon.” Ross’ love of music goes back a long way. He played the clarinet and saxophone during his college years, followed by four years serving in the military during the Korean War. In 1996, Ross and Carol moved to Fond du Lac. When he started to

give some kids from his church free music lessons in the late ’70s, Ross became interested in playing again. He met Devon through his church, Trinity Baptist, and offered to give him free lessons on the saxophone. Ross even went as far as to loan Devon a saxophone, and he continued his music lessons with Mike’s Music, here in Fond du Lac. Devon’s dad, Terry has done videos of the group. He added, “Devon is now 16 years old and is home-schooled. He has been playing with the S.C.A.M.P. band about two years.” He continued, “He’s a fine young man and is respected and appreciated by the other members.” Ross admits he is willing to give free band lessons to his church

members if someone is interested and he can fit it into his schedule. There are 14 current members now, plus Carol. “Both Carol and Chris are the glue that hold us together.” That was especially true when Ross took a six-month hiatus recovering from cancer and “chemo” treatments. In addition, “They kept the show going.” Carol also takes care of the bookkeeping and appointments. Ross lost all his hair from the treatments but he laughs now, when he said, “My hair came back with a vengeance. It was never this thick and never this curly.” His new look prompted Carol to comment on his striking resemblance to Colonel Sanders. Carol commented his bushy eyebrows, long hair and twice as much hair also prompted a few other people to say the same thing. “Even some of the employees at KFC made like comments.” A few photos were taken of Ross and the colonel, along with the band members. The photos and Ross’ resemblance met the approval by the local manager

of KFC. The band practices every sWednesday from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Fond du Lac Senior Center. Ross scompares the rehearsals to “almost a fun festival.” There is a lot of give and take between the vocalists and the accompanists. One of the bands first performances was at Harbor Haven gNursing Home. One of the band’s favorite venues is St. Joseph’s Convent in Campbellsport, which will soon be closing. Ross noted some of the retired sisters even participated with cymbals and maracas when they entertained. On Oct. 25, the S.C.A.M.P. Band performed at the convent in Campbellsport for a German Fest, which will be their farewell concert there. The business card for the band reads they are available for CSuper Bowl halftime; Battleship Christenings; World Series Seventh Inning Stretch; Bar Mitzvahs; Divorce Settlements; and other minor events. In addition, they entertain at area nursing homes,

assisted living centers, senior centers and other facilities in the community. While the non-profit group doesn’t charge for their performances, they rely on love offerings (donations) to help keep them going. Big band, polka music, waltzes, operetta and easy listening are the different kinds of music they play. “We use a lot of humor and tell a lot of jokes when we entertain, and sometimes people in the crowd will get up and dance.” Ross comments, “We are primarily entertainers — very competent musicians and enjoy what we do, and even more when our audiences enjoy it. We use a lot of humor, especially when we make a mistake and we all love to have a good time. Once in a while we play pretty good.” “The best part of belonging to S.C.A.M.P. is getting to play. We would like other senior centers to know what we have done, and maybe they could start something like this in their own communities,” Ross commented. ✦

S.C.A.M.P. The band performs for donations to help defer expenses. Rehearsals are at the Fond du Lac Senior Center every Wednesday morning. Interested musicians and vocalists are welcome. Upcoming schedule: ● Oct. 31, St. Francis Home ● Nov. 1, 2-4 p.m., American Legion. Seniors dance and tribute to Anna Rose Riederer for 20-plus years of teaching dance. ● Nov. 13, St. Agnes Adult Day Care Services. The band has bookings in 2014 at All About Life Rehab Center, The Woodlands Senior Park, and St. Francis Home. For more information or to book an event, contact Carol Purcell at 920-922-3894.

e recently returned from leading a group of travelers through the Provence region of France ending with three days in Paris. This tour was in partnership with the Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts and Kevin Miller, executive director. Rich in the arts, the tour included visits to the National Museum of Picasso in Antibes, a stop in Arles, home of Vincent Van Gogh, and of course, a tour of The Louvre in Paris. In addition, some visited the renowned Museum Dorsey. Our expert guides shared all necessary particulars on not only who the artists were, but extras

like the material they had available at the time. One of their stories was of Picasso and his use of shipyard paint following World War II. His paintings reflected darker and less-warm colors. While in Vallauris in 1951, Picasso painted his now famous plywood painting of La Guerre et la Paix, inside a chapel. Not surprising the colors were dull green, beige and black and the mural itself, covering the entire inside walls curved to a point at the apex of the ceiling, depicts war and peace. The favorite part of my journey was the absolute beauty of the French Riviera coastline. I fell in love with the blue shades of the Mediterranean, the craggy, curving coastline and the yachts. And I’ll never forget the mountain towns that dotted the cliffs as we wound our way to Monaco and Monte Carlo. On our way to Monaco we stopped at the ancient town of Eze, which overlooks the bay St. Laurent of Eze, first populated around 2000 BC. Our guide advised us it would be a challenging walk up 1,400 feet above sea level. We all made the excursion and while some had to pause to catch their breath, the quaintness, shops, beauty and views made this a memorable part of the tour. In its day, Eze was a fortress with a turbulent history of Romans, Moors, French and Turkish invasions. After our excursion to Monaco, including Monte Carlo, we departed

Nice where we had spent four beautiful days. We had about a fourhour drive to Arles, the home of Van Gogh. He was famous for paintings such as The Starry Night, CafÊ Terrace at Night, The Courtyard of the Hospital of Arles. We actually stood in front of the Yellow CafÊ and the Courtyard of the Hospital. Our first stop on our way to Arles was at the Chateau Sainte Roseline, Chapel and Winery, which dated back to the 12th century. In the chapel is a Chagall mural. Afterwards we enjoyed a wine-tasting session and had time to purchase what we desired. Our second stop was at the olive grove called Moulin Castelas located in Les Baux de Provence, France. We walked in the groves, heard about the production process and were able to taste the various olive oils, and pate.’ We arrived in Arles and toured a most beautifully preserved Roman ruins. It included a coliseum similar to the one in Rome, but much better preserved and smaller. Today it is used for rodeos and bullfights. Our guide took us to the actual Yellow CafÊ used by Van Gogh for his famous CafÊ Terrace at Night painting. Van Gogh himself frequented the restaurant. We then we moved to the actual site of the Courtyard of the Hospital of Arles painting where our guide shared the moving story of Vincent Van Gogh’s life. Paris will have to wait for another column.
