WIC Symphony Orchestra fundraising dinner set
IRON RIVER—The West Iron County Symphony Orchestra will host a chicken/spaghetti dinner on Sunday, Jan. 25, at the Stambaugh Elementary School gym to help support its trip to New York City in April.
    Dinner will be served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The menu includes chicken, spaghetti, coleslaw, bread and desserts. Prices for the meal are: adults $8, students $5 and children under five free. Take outs will be available.
    Advanced tickets are available from any student going on the trip or by calling the high school at 265-5184, ex. 4156, or by emailing Tammie Carr at tcarr@westiron.org.
    While eating, diners will enjoy music being played by orchestra members. The students will also be available to bus tables and answer questions about the trip.
    A silent auction and door prize drawings will take place throughout the afternoon. Many businesses have donated items for the auction and drawings. Some of the items donated are: a 32-inch flat screen TV, casino packages, oil changes and quilts, plus much more.
    The dinner will help offset the cost of the trip for the students who have chosen to go on the trip, which is an educational opportunity for the young people to attend a music clinic at Syracuse University where music staff will listen and critique the group as a whole and in sections.
    The rest of the trip is packed with touring and enjoying the sights and sounds of New York City. Before the music clinic, the group will stop and view Niagara Falls from the U.S. side.
    While in New York City, the students will visit the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, The World Trade Center site (formally Ground Zero) and Times Square. They will also attend a performance of Blue Man Group and see a Broadway play.
