The Alton Salvation Army may soon offer a music program to area youth. While Lieutenant Teri Ellison says the local schools have good programs already, this would be a program that would reach the kids that may not have the opportunities at school.
Ellison tells The Big Z she was recently moved to proceed with the idea.

She says they have funding, as well as a piano, drum set, cornet, and guitars, and the thought is to have a one-hour music training session. Ellison reminds they are in the early planning stages. If you would like to help get the program started, call the Alton Salvation Army at 465-7764.
