A local high school marching band earns a once in a lifetime opportunity. The Huntington High School band will perform for President Barack Obama next July.

They're the only band from Louisiana performing at the annual National Independence Day Parade in Washington D.C.

They need the community's support to turn this dream into a reality. The band is raising money to fund their trip to the nation’s capital.

Checks and money orders can be taken to Huntington High School. Or they can be mailed to 6801 Rasberry Ln, Shreveport, LA 71129. Make all checks out to the Huntington band.
