Local band members benefit from donations


The Galena School District's band program has substantially grown over the years.

A while back, there were eight members of the high school band.  Now, there are 23 high school band members and 44 members of the middle school band.

Crossland Construction has donated money to help keep the school's band program growing.  The school also encourages students to rent instruments.

"Just because that means the student is probably going to take better care of it, if it's theirs.  For students who can't afford it, we have plenty of horns.  And when we don't have plenty, the school finds a way to make sure we have a way to find something," says band instructor Andrea Dinkel.

Students say playing band serves as a stress reliever for the day.
