Marching Coalers to clean cars

Coal City High School’s Marching Coaler Band will host a car wash on Saturday, Aug. 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the school’s west parking lot, 655 W. Division St. Car washes are $5 and can be purchased in advance from any band member or when you arrive.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to support the band’s upcoming marching season. The band will perform at all home football games and march in the annual Grundy County Corn Festival and Coal City Octoberfest parades. The band is also scheduled to participate in field show competitions including the Marching Panther Invitational in Washington, IL, Morton High School Marching Band Invitational, Naperville Central Marching Classic and the Illinois State University Marching Competition.
