Most people whistling simultaneously

With a dozen Lehigh Valley area veterans at their side and the assistance of the Nazareth Area High School Wind Ensemble, 750 seventh- and eighth-graders from the Nazareth Area Middle School packed the football field to whistle to "America the Beautiful" and "God Bless America" in honor of Lehigh Valley veterans - setting the new world record for the most people whistling simultaneously at a single venue.

  The Guinness world record for the most people whistling simultaneously at a single venue is 329 in an event organised by the TMD Corporation (Japan).

  Guinness World Records also recognized theworld record for the most pumpkins carved simultaneously: 965, achieved by 965 students at the Malvern Town Centre in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada.

  The idea to break the record came from 14-year-old Cameron Ohrwashel, an eighth-grader who wanted to break a Guinness World Record.
  Last summer, he began looking up various records that the school would be able to assist him in the effort.
  The whistling was documented by recordings and photographs. Upper Nazareth Township Board of Supervisors Chairman Mike Rinker and police Chief Alan Siegfried also served as witnesses.

  Prior to the whistling, students attempted gathering donations from family members, friends and others to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Pennsylvania, Pottsville Regional Office. Monique Ohrwashel said the goal was to raise $1 per student for a total of $750.

  Middle school Principal Robert Kern also applauded the efforts of the students and the idea to tie the record-breaking attempt in with Memorial Day.
