Musicians funding upcoming travel

February 26, 2004

The Mirror's 2004 partnership with Tonganoxie junior high and high school musicians kicked off on Monday.

To help vocal and instrumental music students raise money for trips, The Mirror is donating a portion of the price of each subscription students sell. Students receive $10 for each new subscription and $5 for each subscription that is renewed.

A 52-week subscription to The Mirror costs $30 in Leavenworth, Jefferson, Douglas, Wyandotte and Johnson counties; $45 a year elsewhere in Kansas; and $50 a year outside of Kansas.

The promotion will be available through March 17.

This is the fifth consecutive year The Mirror has donated subscription sales to vocal and instrumental music students.

The money is used for trips that the young musicians take, such as the high school band's recent trips to the Cotton Bowl and the Liberty Bowl.

The Mirror's project helps students at both the junior high and high school in Tonganoxie.

"People may subscribe through a band or choir member," said Caroline Trowbridge, editor and publisher of The Mirror. "Or, they're welcome to send in or drop by their subscription and we'll take it from there."

A subscription coupon appears on page 10B of today's edition of The Mirror and may be used by subscribers.
