When members of Glenbard West's marching band traveled from Glen Ellyn to England for the New Year's Day parade, they brought back more than just photos and souvenirs - they brought back memories and experiences to last a lifetime.
"Visiting many of the historic sites in England made history seem much more real to me," said Salli Schlacks, a freshman baritone player with the band. "At Windsor Castle, we were able to see actual paintings that we had heard about in school. We visited the Tower of London and saw the scaffold where many famous people had been killed, including some of the wives of Henry the eighth."
