The Prescott High School marching band got a look at what their itinerary in London would be on Wednesday night from Band Director Dan Bradstreet.
In May, 2008, the band received their invitation to participate in the 24th London Parade and Gala Concert Series, supported by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and preparations for the trip have been underway ever since. (Read the invitation letter here.)
Obviously, part of the preparations include raising money, as this trip will cost $2600 per student. And those efforts got a bit of a boost on Wednesday as representatives from the Members of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows Lodge 1 and Rebekahs came to present a check to the students to help with trip expenses.
The check, in the amount of $7,732.39 was presented to Bradstreet (left) for the Booster club by Don Jones, Noble Grand of Arizona Lodge 1 (713-0990); Bud Tow, Secretary; George Krob, Treasurer; Theo Krob, Chaplain, Trustee; May Tow, Noble Grand of Rebekahs.
