MoBand 100 Years Exhibit
You can take a walk down memory lane at the 100 years of MoBand exhibit at the McHenry Museum. Since 1919, the Modesto Band of Stanislaus County has been providing music and teaching new musicians. Over the years, the band has evolved, moved to Graceada Park and has rolled with the times, yet keeping the traditions that we love. Please stop by and see the exhibit and you can learn more and donate to MoBand at
