On May 25, 2008, a category F5 tornado struck Parkersburg, Iowa and virtually destroyed the high school and a large part of the surrounding community. Massive rebuilding efforts are currently underway but the high school will not be completed until September 2009, when the long task of refurnishing facilities and replacing a music collection spanning many decades will undoubtedly continue for some time. All proceeds from tonight's performance will go directly to the Aplington-Parkersburg music program.
