Music! Music! Music!
The Appleton Public Library is very interested in preserving local history and collecting our shared stories. This blog is a place to share those stories, sometimes from Appleton, sometimes from elsewhere in Wisconsin. I hope to connect people with others who are interested in the footprints of the past. Feel free to chime in about your history. -Karen
It's hard to believe, but summer is already winding down. Tonight is the last summer concert by the Appleton City Band. Rumor has it, there will be ice cream. 7 o'clock at Pierce Park. This is a local band made up of your friends and neighbors. Some are music professionals, some are teachers your kids have at school, some are community members who just play for fun. It is a local treasure in which we can all take pride. It also has a long history. At one time, it was basically the pictured Field Artillery Band. The library has acquired this terrific photo, but there is no identifying information on it. Do you know anyone who might be in it? Do you know someone else who might know someone in it? We'd like to get the men identified, and hope you can help! Click on the photo to see the full image. Hope to hear from you soon, and see you tonight at the park!
