Lodi is about to receive a truly historic honor when the Herald Trumpets of the United States Army Band, "Pershing's Own," from Washington, D.C., will come here in a rare West Coast appearance to join the Lodi Community Band as guest performers in two special concerts on May 3 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at Hutchins Street Square.

We invite you to attend one of the performances of this "Patriotic Music Celebration." Great effort and support from local businesses and organizations have come together to make this a once in a lifetime event.

As many of you know, the Lodi Community Band is a volunteer organization that performs free concerts throughout the year. But for this concert we must charge a small admission fee. We are responsible for all the expenses connected with bringing the Herald Trumpets to Lodi - their transportation, lodging, meals and entertainment. So for the first time, we must charge just $20 per ticket for almost two hours of wonderful musical entertainment. These tickets are available at the Hutchins Street Square box office.

It is truly a great honor for Lodi to have these talented musicians come to our town. Please show your community pride and appreciation for all who are making this possible by joining us on May 3.

announcer for Lodi Community Band

long-time band member

    The only thing missing from this letter is a link to the Lodi Community Band's website: http://www.lodicommunityband.com If folks aren't sure why they should come see the Herald Trumpets, they can watch a video clip on the website and hear just how awesome they are. Playing with them will be an honor.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
