The man who wrote the new official song of La Porte saw it performed

for the first time last night.

The high school and middle school choirs sang ''La Porte Will Always Be Home.''

Alan Barcus wrote the song at the request of the mayor.

Barcus is accomplished pianist and song writer.....who grew up here then left but

later returned.

Barcus says it took him just a couple of days to write the song......which is pretty typical

for him on any of his song writing ventures.

Barcus used to produce commercials for major companies like Mc Donalds and


He plans to record the song himself in about a week or so.
