Seen above yesterday practicing on the Hoover field, they will arrive at Union Station today, and board the Amtrak Southwest Chief to Chicago. There, buses provided by the library will take them to West Branch, IA.
Friday is a rehearsal day, with social activities planned by the library, and Saturday the band performs in the morning, at a midday parade, and at an afternoon concert, then joins in evening celebrations.

Risner will be leaving earlier and arriving later and plans brief layovers in Grand Junction, Colorado and Lincoln, Nebraska.
