THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) -

Thomas County Band gear will soon be riding to football games in style.

The school board purchased a freight truck for the band.

It's almost ready, but they are still waiting on a few parts for it.

Those parts are coming from a North Carolina plant that was shut down during Hurricane Matthew.

"We pray blessings on them as they got hit and for the time being they're out of business for the moment. I'm sure they will be back so we will have to be patient for a little while longer," said Michael Thomas, Thomas County Band Director.

Thomas has worked on the truck's design for over a year.

He said he's excited to have it hit the road soon.
