The Stafford High School Band is taking its annual band/senior trip to Denver. But first, the band will hold a memorial concert at the Colorado memorial for the 1970 Wichita State University plane crash. The estimated time of arrival at the memorial site on I-70 is 4 p.m. Friday, May 14.

The idea for the memorial concert came from senior Jordan Hildebrand, and was a surprise to Steve Gill, band and vocal music teacher, since the students weren't even born when the tragedy occurred.

The band also plans to place a sunflower wreath at the memorial site with the inscription "Gone but Not Forgotten, Stafford Trojans remember the WSU Shockers."

Stafford is on Highway 50 west of Hutchinson.
