ALEXANDRIA — Katy's Swing Band wants to honor military members who won't be able to make it home for the holidays by displaying their photos during its Sunday, Nov. 27 holiday concert.
The pictures will scroll on the big screen at the Andria Theatre while the band plays "I'll be Home for Christmas," which was written during World War II to honor soldiers fighting overseas, and recorded by Bing Crosby.
Photos may be of service members from the Alexandria area or who have family locally. They should be submitted by mid-November.
The concert is free to attend this year because organizers received funding from Douglas Machine and Runestone Electric Operation Roundup. It's the third year for the concert and the first for the group's homage to service members. The concert will include the Alexandria Area High School Carolers and special guests.
