The 10th annual Oregon Trail Band sponsored by Doane University will be held Monday, January 9, 2017, at Gering High School Auditorium. There will be one band which I will conduct, and I will attempt to represent as many schools as possible. Fourteen schools participated last year, and I hope you will consider joining us this year. I thank Randy Raines for his willingness to host this event at Gering High School.
