Larry Berg, director of the Bonner Springs City Band, was the featured speaker at the regular meeting of the Edwardsville Kiwanis Club last week at Sister's Restaurant.

Berg discussed the history of the band and its operation.

He said the first concert would be at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, June 12, at Kelly Murphy Park.

The band will start preparation for the summer season with a rehearsal 7 p.m., June 5, at Bonner Springs High School. The annual picnic for band members and their families will follow the rehearsal.
