Jackson Township Community Band to perform Monday

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

The Jackson Township Community Band will pull a doubleheader Monday, Nov. 12, honoring Clay County Veterans.

At 10 a.m., the band will perform inside the Clay County Courthouse prior to the annual salute by the American Legion and V.F.W. posts.

This is the band's oldest continuous musical event, first played at the courthouse upon learning of the German surrender ending World War I in 1918.

A medley of World War I songs, featuring "Over There," by George M. Cohan, will be highlighted along with patriotic marches by Sousa and Jewell.

At 1 p.m., the band will perform at Van Buren Elementary School for the annual veterans' recognition.
