Nov. 13, 2023-- On Sunday, Nov. 12, members of the High School South Marching Indian Band volunteered their time to participate in the first-ever "Pep Rally for the River." The event, created by Save Barnegat Bay and hosted at Silverton Farms, raised awareness and donations in its fight for a just settlement with the NJDEP and BASF in court at the Ciba-Geigy Superfund Site.
"These students already sacrificed part of their four-day weekend to honor our service men and women at the Toms River Veterans Day Parade yesterday," said band director Christopher Test. "Now, these students are here today performing to celebrate our town and promote an important cause-- clean waterways in our river and bay."
Kudos to these students donating their time and talent in defense of our community!
