MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - An old piano has been given a reprieve from a landfill and instead could soon grace a sidewalk in Mason City.

Doug Price works for Forest City, and he told the Mason City Globe Gazette (https://bit.ly/1h3Rbvn ) that he’d read about the piano tipped over by a drunken 21-year-old early Sunday morning in front of Lorados restaurant. It was one of four donated pianos that were decorated by 20 high school juniors as part of the Tunes for the Town project.

Price told his mother that he’d rather donate her piano to Mason City, and she gave her permission.

Chamber of Commerce executive director Robin Anderson had worked with the students on the project, and she says she received several calls from people offering help after they learned about the vandalism.
