John Lennon tour bus keeps Beatle's memory alive in Lake Forest

Saturday, April 21, 2018

John Lennon might not spark any first-hand memories in kids today, but nearly 38 years after his death, a tour bus bearing his name aims to preserve his legacy.

Earlier this month, the bus stopped off in Lake Forest.

The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, a mobile recording studio that treks around the country providing music productions lessons to students, visited Deer Path Middle School from April 9 to 12.

Deer Path band director Corey Ames, who said he knew about the bus, persuaded the Spirit of ’67 Foundation (a nonprofit foundation that supports District 67 initiatives) to authorize a $10,000 grant allowing it to come to the school for fifth- through eighth-graders.
