Local News

METAMORA, IL. – Orchestra students at Metamora Township High School hosted a special concert called The Salute to Veterans. The community was invited to enjoy songs like America the Beautiful and the Liberty Bell.

Some songs like Inchon even included the sounds of helicopters, in order to take the audience’s imagination to the scene of war.

“I love it, my granddaughter plays here, and we’ve been to several. They always do real well. My husband was in the Vietnam War so it brings back memories,” said Becky Peplow.

Donations for this concert benefited the Honor Flight fund.
