After submitting a written letter about why it is so important to thank our veterans and what it means to each of them personally, 16 outstanding Advanced Band members from Lakeside Middle School were chosen to attend a special "Yay for Vets" program. Once chosen, they selected four patriotic songs and researched the background information in order to give a short bit of history for each piece played. Two performances were given, one at the Veterans Home, and the other at the VA Medical Center. The audiences were very appreciative. It was an awesome day of community service!
