The North Medford and South Medford High School marching bands will be performing in the National Memorial Day Parade in Washington D.C.
In November 2022, $75,000 in Council Community Initiative Funds was awarded to the Medford School District to assist the marching bands travel and participation in the parade.
“I’m excited to let our students have an opportunity that some may have never got, or will get again,” said South Medford High School Band Director, Erik Osberg. “I’m so grateful to the City of Medford for the help in achieving this goal.”
Council Community Initiative Funds are comprised of marijuana tax revenue the City receives for local and state marijuana taxes. The City Council allocates the monies for projects and programs that support our local community and meet the Council Biennial Goals.
