A Championship Open Class Drum and Bugle Corps competition was held at the Oregon High School on Aug. 2.

The third annual Petunia City Brass show, benefitting the Lee County Council on Aging and the Kreider Alliance was held at OHS’ Landers-Loomis Field because of ongoing field work at Dixon High School.

Eight Corps competed in the event: Southwind, Mobile, Alabama; Colt Cadets Dubuque, Iowa; Shadow, Oregon, Wisconsin, Impulse, Buena Park, California; Guardians, Buena Park, California, 7th Regiment, New London, Connecticut; Music City, Nashville, Tennessee; and Spartans, Nashua, New Hampshire.

Also performing as an exhibition, was the Kreider Services’ own Petunia City Stix.

Beth Nelson Chase, Mt. Morris, opened the show when she sang the National Anthem.

The concession stand was operated by parents and members of the Oregon High School Band and The Village of Progress sold baked goods.
