CBS News Inviting Nationwide Participation of Taps

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Trumpeters and musicians of all ages across the nation are being invited to play taps at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day.
The idea comes from CBS News "On the Road" correspondent Steve Hartman and retired Air Force bugler Jari Villanueva to keep the spirit of the holiday alive. Parades and observances have been canceled or limited because of the novel coronavirus pandemic. 
Instead of gatherings that might spread the deadly and highly contagious COVID-19, buglers and trumpeters are asked to stand alone to play taps to mark the holiday dedicated to the nation's military personnel who have lost their lives. 
iBerkshires was alerted to the event by Clarksburg resident James Stakenas, the big band conductor for the Eagles Community Band.
