Need a lanyard? Madison City Community Orchestra can help

MADISON – Members of Madison City Community Orchestra are ‘playing their parts,’ not only in musical arrangements but in a gesture of community outreach during the COVID-19 crisis.

“We have free lanyards for anyone that would want one to help keep up with their masks,” MCCO Director Sandy Weisner said.

“I saw a Facebook post with someone asking area businesses to donate lanyards to school-age kids, so I thought, ‘Why can’t we do that?’” Weisner said. The orchestra ordered a stock of lanyards, which are now in and ready to go to individuals.

“The lanyards have been sanitized by MCCO members who were wearing masks and gloves. Members wrapped the lanyards in tissue paper and put them into little plastic bags so that they are not touched,” Weisner said.

Anyone who wants one … or a dozen … lanyards can contact MCCO. “We are happy to provide the lanyards free of charge,” Weisner said.

To request lanyards, email director@mccorchestra.org.
