A big boost for the marching band
The Wadena-Deer Creek Marching Band has a new spring in its step after Wadena State Farm agents Bill Stearns and Jolene Johannes and company officials gave the band a check for $20,000 to replace instruments and items lost in the June 17 tornado.
State Farm also sprung for a barbecued pork dinner before a volleyball game last week when students and fans were surprised with the surprisingly large donation.
Band Director Lisa Weniger said the money meant a lot to her students.
