ALTHOUGH their props were destroyed in a four-alarm warehouse fire on Monday, Fralinger String Band will perform in the New Year's Day parade - and their friendly rivals are offering to help.
"Our hearts go out to them," said Tom Maminski of the Aqua String Band in Bridesburg. "Whatever they need, our door is open. The competition is New Year's Day, but the rest of the year, we're all one big family."
Aqua Captain Ron Iannacone said that he reached out to Fralinger's president and captain as soon as he heard about the fire to offer support.
