Nine students from Fair Oaks Middle School were selected for the 2013 River City Honor Band. The group performed April 20 in Mason City.
"This was a challenging and rewarding event for some of our first and second year band students," Tara Smith, FOMS band instructor, said. "The kids enjoyed the experience and it gave them a taste of what being a member of an honor band is all about."
