ANG's 67th Army Band moves into renovated facility

From an AP story:

The Wyoming Army National Guard's 67th Army Band has moved into a remodeled armory in Wheatland that provides many features of a proper band hall.

The remodeled facility opened this month after a yearlong, $2.2 million renovation.

Members of the band say the new space is a significant improvement over the gym they formerly used for rehearsal in Wheatland and the garage they used in Casper while the renovation was taking place.

The new armory includes storage space, individual practice rooms, and separate practice rooms for the concert band and rock band. The rehearsal areas are surrounded by soundproof walls.

The renovation also added a parade field for marching and drilling exercises.
