We will try to have it available at the Stratford Historical Exhibit. The Stratford Military band was a musical organization of fourteen active members. The band was organized in February of 1913. Regular practice was indulged in and the band was open for local and outside engagements. Theo. Steinmetz of Marshfield was the musical director and Walter Oby was manager.
