I originally wrote this for the VCMA websiteoriginal story is here.

On December 6th, 2008 the hardiest of the VCMA members were down at Red Clay for the arrival of the Chrismas Tree ship. Temperatures were below freezing, but the band played on. It wasn’t in the vein of the Titanic’s band since luckily the members that showed up did not go down with the ship. The ship made it through the ice and arrived safely to deliver trees to the wonderful citizens of Vermilion.

From this performance the band was featured on the Vermilion Photojournal’s front page and a video on the Sandusky Register’s website.

A friend of Ruth Tanner’s took these following pictures of the band (click through to see larger versions):
