Week 5 - July 16 Rehearsal

Chemical City Band Performers,

Our rehearsal will be at Midland High School tonight at 7:00 PM.  Normally we meet at Dow High School, but without electrical power, that would be difficult.  Access to MHS via Eastman Road (also under construction) is maintained, but it might be easier to approach from Swede.  The band room is on the east end of the building.  See you all at 7.
