News From the Band Room
ELCO RAIDER BAND
Hi Folks - The band had a fantastic performance at this past Saturday's Lebanon County Band Exhibition. Thanks to all of you who came to support the band's performance. The band members had a really good time watching the other Lebanon County Bands as well as LVC perform. I think everyone enjoyed the stands tunes band war at the end. If you would like to watch a video of our performance, please click on the following link: BAND EXHIBITION.
