VHS Band Opens Senate Session

March 13, 2013

The Vernonia High School Band played at the opening of the February 19th session of the Oregon State Senate. They were sponsored by Senator Betsy Johnson who has been such an effective advocate for our new schools project for many years. It was a great opportunity for them and us to say thank you to the legislators for their support of our new schools project last year. It was also a good learning experience to see how the legislative branch of the government works as they were able to stay for the whole session that morning. That afternoon they went to Western Oregon University and worked with a professor on their performance skills before returning home to Vernonia. Attached is a photo of them on the Senate steps of the capital building.
