EMPORIUM, CAMERON COUNTY - A local band has been invited to play at a Pearl Harbor Memorial event.

Last year, the Cameron County High School Band received an email from a former Marine officer asking them to take part in a Pearl Harbor Memorial on December 7. The band looked into it and decided to accept the invitation.

Only one band per state is invited and the school is thrilled they were selected.

The trip costs $200,000. They have about $20,000 more to raise. They thank the community for all the support they have received.
