Red Rhythm is hosting its annual banquet for all team members Monday from 6:30-10 p.m.

“It’s a bittersweet feeling going into my last banquet,” senior lieutenant Sophia Reeves said. “I get sad knowing it’s the last moment we will have as a team and my last moment as a leader and member on the Red Rhythm, but I also feel pride and appreciation for my time on the team.”

For one foreign exchange student it is more than just a team, but a family. 

“Because it’s my first Banquet I wanted to make it especially special and not just buy a dress, but sew it myself in my Fashion Design class,” junior Vivien Kuts said. “I am excited to get together with each and every one on the team because they are not just team members for me, I’ve grown together with them so much throughout the times I’ve had here in the U.S. as an exchange student, that they really are like a family to me.”

Not only is this banquet a chance for the team to get together, but a way to say goodbye to the graduating seniors. 

“I am most excited to revisit all the memories through the year and celebrate the seniors because it was so fun last year to go on a trip down memory lane,”sophomore Reva Kabnurkar said. “The banquet is a way to finish the year off on a good note, say goodbye to all the seniors who are moving on, and give awards and thanks to all the people who deserve it, but it also brings us together for one final moment before the team changes forever.”
