Lansing Everett Marching Band Will Play in DC
Word is that the Lansing Everett HS Marching Band will perform in the 58th Annual Presidential Inauguration activities in Washington DC January 18-21st. WLNS TV 6 says that they’ll play in the Welcome Celebration Concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial Thursday the 19th.
What a great educational opportunity for the students to tour our nation's capitol, explore the monuments, see the wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, see the Declaration of Independence and tour the Smithsonian African American Museum.
Of course, it's not free. The Everett Viking Marching Band needs donations from the Greater Lansing community to get them to this experience-of-a-lifetime. They'll need about $650.00 per student for the trip - a total of $36,000.
If you can help, donations (no matter how much) can be made payable to Lansing Everett Band Boosters and sent to the attention of Penny Filonczuk, 3900 Stable St., Lansing, MI 48910.
