Band-Aid Day approaches


The Bellefontaine High School marching band will be traveling door to door in the community Aug. 9 asking for monetary donations to raise money to travel to Philadelphia to perform in the Thanksgiving Day parade. Mayor Adam Brannon presented a proclamation to band director Nick Pelfrey declaring Aug. 9 Band-Aid Day. The money raised will be funneled into a general fund and evenly dispersed to each student to help with travel costs, which are $750 per student. The cost includes a side trip to New York City.
