DGN Band Performs for Memorial Day Ceremonies
























Members of the DGN Band were up early this morning in support of Woodridge and Downers Grove municipal Memorial Day ceremonies. Members of the band performed in both events.
Many thanks, and congratulations to all of our Trojan musicians for exemplary community service. North High salutes all the service men and women of our nation, and specifically - today - remembers those who have given their life in support of our freedoms.
