L-S marching band participates in 70th annual Strasburg Memorial Day Parade
The high school band played an arrangement that included many different military themed songs, along with their cadence in between each repetition of the song. As the band passed the Wesley United Methodist Church, junior Steve Greenwood played taps to honor those who have fallen. Junior Josh Chambers played taps in front of another church in town. The high school also played the National Anthem as the flag was being raised in the center of town.
The middle school played their arrangement all through the parade as well, but were farther back in the line. They did not have anyone play taps and did not play the National Anthem with the raising of that flag.
The L-S bands have no intention of stopping this tradition, so come out next year to help honor those who have sacrifice for us.
