The Bryan City Band is gearing up to start up for the summer. Local leaders say it’s just too valuable to the local community to skip…so coronavirus does not win on the stage. The first of the band’s open rehearsals will be held on Wednesday at the MacDonald-Ruff Ice Arena on Townline Road. The ice rink was chosen instead of the bandstand on courthouse square, where the band usually plays when the weather cooperates, to allow for ample social distancing. Concerts and rehearsals are set to be held at the ice rink every Wednesday through the summer season.
