Hiddle honored

A noted Paris musician missed a decade in a recent Prairie Press report.

Susan Hiddle, a retired Paris District 95 music teacher and for 18 summers the manager and/or director of the Paris Municipal Band, received a surprise honor at the last Paris city council meeting when Mayor Craig Smith presented a plaque and proclamation in recognition of her service to the community.

In reporting the honor, the “teen” in eighteen slipped out of the story and the report incorrectly read eight years of service to the band. We’re sorry, because for 18 years, through last season, we’ve enjoyed her every note.
