New band trailer looking sharp for CL
In July of 2016 the CL Band trailer was severely damaged in a storm, since then the Band has used their small trailer to haul equipment to parades and events around the state. The new black 24 foot trailer is a replacement for the damaged unit, and has been so helpful carting all of the Marching Band’s instruments, banner, uniforms when needed, golf cart, water jugs, and snacks. The Marching Band and the trailer are the most visible activity at Chisago Lakes High School, regularly performing for several hundred thousand spectators every year in 10-12 parades around the metro, the Minnesota State Fair, and a Gopher Football halftime show. This past Fall, Frankies Marine offered to donate graphics for the new trailer, Copy Pro in Chisago City was tasked with the design and printing, and Brandon Kelley from Luther Automotive and the Lindstrom Fire Department installed the very large graphics on a hot day! CLMS Band Teacher Stephen Boal, with help from some students in the band - Aidan Jensen, Willow Nadeau, and Mr. Joe DeLisi (CLHS Band), built new removable storage carts to hold the instruments and later painted them. The Band has had the trailer pulled in the Karl Oskar Days parade and look forward to that happening consistently.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This story covers the Wednesday, June 9 special meeting and appeared in our Thursday, June 17 issue. During the Chisago Lakes' School Board regular meeting on Thursday, June 17, the board voted to rescind the motion to go for a fall levy after meeting with consultants, who informed them the short timeline would not work.

The board still plans to go for a levy in 2022, but they wanted to make sure this wasn't a rushed process and did not set a specific 2022 date for a levy vote.
