AHS marching band showcase Saturday
space
High school musicians from throughout the region will be featured at Antigo’s historic Schofield Stadium Saturday for a marching band invitational.

Bands from Merrill, Marathon, and Antigo will perform beginning at 6:30 p.m. and continuing under the lights until 9 p.m.

Each band will perform their marching show, and Wisconsin State Music Association judges will offer a critique and score the band in numerous categories. A drumline feature and all-band finale will also take place.

The showcase is hosted by the Antigo High School band program, which will be performing the field show True Heroes of Iwo Jima.

Jeff Dewey, Antigo High School director of bands, invites all music fans to come and watch.

This is an opportunity for the community to see an example of what marching band is all about, Dewey said. It’s not just about football games, it’s an educational and artistic entity of its own.

Antigo High School junior Lauren Hackbarth will be playing in her second Antigo Marching Showcase, and says she is looking forward to it, describing the event as a unique experience to see other bands.

Work continuing on Habitat home
space
Recent rains have delayed, but not halted work on the Habitat for Humanity Home being built for the Shaddon and Franchesca Swim Family near White Lake, with an open house slated in under a month.

Workers have started putting siding on this past week and the home is expected to be completed and ready for the family by early November.

To reach that goal many more individuals and groups will need to step forward to help, Habitat President Paul Grinde said, adding I’ve always been impressed by the willingness of people in Langlade County  to volunteer.

The group works Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Lunch is provided. To volunteer please call Grinde at 715-216-8718 .

The community open house is being scheduled for Oct 22.
