Saturday at band practice from 10 a.m. to

Dodge Durango, Journey and Grand Caravan. The whole community is invited to participate.
Anyone 18 or over with a valid driver’s
license can join in.
Lincoln Chrysler Dodge &
Jeep will bring new Dodge vehicles to the
school. LCHS will earn
$20 from Dodge for every person who takes a
