the afternoon of Sunday, August 21, 1966, parents and friends of Trion
High School's marching band bid the students farewell as the band
headed to New York City to participate in a VFW convention and parade
scheduled for Tuesday. Two Greyhound busses hauled the kids and
chaperones to the Big Apple and back. VFW Post 6688 of Chattooga County
contributed $500 for the youngster's transportation.
