Band Day in Keizer

Members of the various McNary High School bands spread out across Keizer on Saturday, Sept. 23. to collect recyclable bottles and cans, as well as financial donations to help fund projects for the marching band, jazz ensemble, symphonic band, orchestra and wind ensemble.

Band members will be in the city until 5 p.m. Saturday. Those wanting to donate their bottles and cans can also bring them to the parking lot at McNary where students will sort them and fill a semi-truck.
