The Mechanicsburg Rotary has supported the Singer Band for many years and took this opportunity to make the presentation at the Rotary Ox Roast. 

The historic Singer Band of Mechanicsburg, PA is an all-volunteer concert band, based near Harrisburg in Central Pennsylvania. The band was originally known as the Keystone Band but changed its name to the Seventh Pennsylvania Voluntary Infantry Band when its members joined the service during the Civil War.

After the war, the band reorganized under the direction of David Singer and became the Singer Cornet Band. This is the early history of one of the oldest town bands in Central Pennsylvania. More info can be found on their web page
