BIRMINGHAM — For one high school in northern Alabama, Saturday might come to be known as the day the music died.
East Limestone High School’s 24-foot band trailer was stolen from the parking lot of Embassy Suites in Birmingham overnight on Saturday, according to a post on Facebook.
The trailer has the school’s logo and name across the side. The school is located in Athens in Limestone County.
East Limestone band director Jennifer Janzen posted a photo of the trailer to her Facebook page in the hopes that people might see it and be on the lookout.
The post reads, “Friends. Please read! Very important!! Last night, our 24 ft black band trailer with East Limestone Marching Indians painted down the side and Mr Jeff Abernathy’s white with gold trim Ford F-250 quad cab truck was stolen while we were at the hotel in Birmingham. All of the woodwind and brass instruments, 3 sets of tenors (drums), 2 sets of multi-toms, drum carriers and stands, all of our new guard equipment, the new generator and cart and drum major podium were on the trailer. Please share this with everyone you know in every social media site that you have. Thank you.”
The police have been notified of the trailer’s theft.
