Meals will be provided by LVW. The band will have free time on Saturday at the Lake Mills Town and Country Days Festival, which is a carnival held in downtown Lake Mills. The students may want to bring spending money for rides and “Carnival Eats”. We will also be attending the Whitewater Classic DCI show that night, so the kids may want to bring spending money for Drum Corps souvenirs, as well as “Stadium Food” at the show. LVW WILL be providing lunch and supper on Saturday, so the kids will be fed. The extra money for food at the Carnival and the Show is up to each individual.
Rehearsal begins at 10:00 AM on Thursday, June 21 at St. Peter Lutheran School N2740 N French Rd, Appleton, WI 54913.
The Week at a Glance: We will be rehearsing at St. Peter on Thursday and Friday. Thursday night the band will be staying at St. Peter, and Friday night the band will be staying at Lakeside Lutheran HS. Saturday morning LVW will march in the Lake Mills Town and Country Days Parade, and that night the band will be attending the Whitewater Classic DCI Show. Following the show everyone will return home. It will be a late arrival for most of our members!
Remember, you should pack for three days, but try to utilize small suitcases and duffel bags. We are traveling with school buses for this week, so space will be very limited.

Please pack nice casual clothes for this service. It is also a communion service, so our WELS/ELS members are welcome to participate in the Lord's Supper.
