Happy 4th of July! Big thanks to the hundreds of students who submitted their videos! "The Stars and Stripes Together: A Virtual Patriotic Play Along" is a collage performance featuring music from 330 students through the 12th grade with the United States Marine Band.
“The President’s Own” United States Marine Band was directed by John Philip Sousa, AKA “The March King” for twelve years. The Stars and Stripes Forever is probably his most famous march and is always played on July 4th.
Thank you to the American Bandmasters Association, John Philip Sousa Foundation, National Band Association, and state band directors associations throughout the U.S. who promoted this project. ... See MoreSee Less

Faith in Fiction book club is meeting by Zoom on Tuesday, July 14. It's a group that enjoys reading and discussing novels, and all are welcome.
July's book is "Tattooist of Auschwitz", a 2018 Holocaust novel by New Zealand novelist Heather Morris. The book tells the story of how Slovakian Jew Lale Sokolov, who was imprisoned at Auschwitz in 1942, fell in love with a girl he was tattooing at the concentration camp. The story is based on the real lives of Sokolov and his wife, Gita Furman.
Timonthy Niedermann, writing in The New York Journal of Books, calls the novel “at once sobering and poignant, both weighted with unspeakable horrors and uplifted by the unique hope of love”.
Contact Bonnie Kiermaier at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to attend the Zoom meeting. ... See MoreSee Less
