Columbus North marching band raising money to perform at inaugural parade
COLUMBUS, Ind.– A local group with a special connection to Vice President-elect Mike Pence is raising money to march in the inaugural parade next month.
Columbus North’s marching band still needs about $125,000 to afford the trip to Washington, D.C.
The band’s longtime director pitched the idea to march in the parade to a state representative, who passed the message along to Gov. Pence, since he is an alumni of the school. Then, they got the invitation.
The band is working already on a special performance for the parade.
Those interested in making a pledge to help send the Sound of North to the inaugural parade in Washington D.C. are asked to email email@example.com with the amount of the pledge. Pledges are then accepted at Salin Bank locations in Columbus and Edinburgh under “Columbus North Band Boosters inaugural parade fund.”
