New band tower

Pierce County Sound of Silver Band now has a new band tower on its practice field. Employees with Melhart Music of McAllen, Texas, installed the new $42,000 tower recently. The 8-by-8-by-20- foot steel frame tower, pictured above, features a storage area, a public address (PA) system and lighting. Education Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (ESPLOST) monies were used to purchase and install the new tower.
