When the opportunity presents itself to thank a veteran, please do. There is no better opportunity to do that locally than going to the Veteran’s Day ceremony at the Illinois Veteran’s Home in Quincy. That ceremony will take place at 10am at Lippencott Hall this Saturday.
The Quincy area is blessed to have so many accomplished musicians, not only now but for many years before. Some 69 years ago, Carl Landrum came up with the idea to form the Quincy Park Band which is still going strong as it nears seven decades of performing for the community.
