Residents may adopt a band member to help raise funds
The Douglas High School band has been invited to march in the San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade Feb. 19.
The band was accepted because of its high quality of marching and playing, said Band Director Bill Zabelsky.
The Chinese New Year this year is the Year of the Dragon, he said.
To help raise funds for the trip, band members have brought back their “adopt-a-band member” program and are asking for help from friends and neighbors.
Carson Valley residents can adopt a member for $25 or a section for $100.
Call Zabelsky at Douglas High, 782-5136, ext. 8.
