Strike Up The Band

By Staff | Jul 6, 2016

A band concert in Soper Park provided a nice holiday treat on Monday in Emmetsburg as part of the Emmetsburg 4th of July celebration. The band concert opened with a salute to the flag by VFW?Post 2295 and the playing of Taps prior to the playing of the Star Spangled Banner by the Emmetsubrg Community Band. Emmetsburg Mayor Myrna Heddinger gave a brief welcome before the band played for an appreciative gathering under the trees. Other activities on the 4th in Emmetsburg included Kids games, sponsored by the VFW, 3-on-3 Basketball and sand volleyball tournaments, along with a kid’s bouncy house, sponsored by the FUEL?organization. Monday night, the sky was filled with fireworks over Five Island Lake. -- D
