Email News Alerts

About a year and a half ago, a letter to the editor appeared in the pages of this newspaper, calling for the formation of a new city band.


That letter was the spark that eventually led to the creation of the Lakes Area Community Concert Band, which will give its first official concert on Saturday, Nov. 18. Scheduled to begin at 4 p.m., the free concert will take place on the stage of the Historic Holmes Theatre.
