Carol Marvel has a love for the arts. A member of the Lodi Community Band since the early '60s, Marvel was also one of the charter members appointed to the Lodi Arts Commission. And, she was a member of the Tokay Players, a small local theater group. She feels music is the key to real life, the thing that gives us pleasure.
"When I'm in band rehearsal, I don't worry about any other problems in the world," she said.
