Different story surfaces about history of drum

A McMinnville City High School band member is attempting to correct what she believes is an incorrect history on an instrument. In a recent article pertaining to a drum donated to Warren County Heritage Center and Museum, president Jimmy Haley offered the drum’s history as a rivalry trophy between City High and McMinnville Central High. “Supposedly whomever won the homecoming game got the drum,” said Haley.
