We had a great number of responses to who could participate, so we will be doing the Marine Welcome Home celebration at North Elementary on Sunday, January 4, 2015. Here’s the rundown of information:
Who: All Marching 100 members (including guard – you’ll run Rio with us!)
What: Marine Welcome Home Celebration
When: Sunday, January 4, 2015
Where: North Elementary School (Godfrey)
Here’s what the day will look like:
11:30am – Drumline/Low Brass members meet at AHS, load red trailer
12:00pm – Trailer head to North Elementary
12:30pm – Band members meet at North Elementary, put on uniform (you’ll need to bring your instrument!)
1:00pm – Run through ‘I Go to Rio’ and ‘Star Spangled Banner’
2:00pm – Celebration begins – procession/banner
2:30pm (Estimate) – finish up – pack up/load trailer/head home
Please ask your student if they have brought their instrument home for Christmas Break – they’ll need to run through I Go to Rio and the National Anthem at least a couple of times over break to keep it fresh.
Percussion members – I will be at AHS on Friday, January 2 to give you some practice time. It will be in the afternoon. Stay tuned to email/abob.net for specific times. Please plan on attending for a while – I will work with you/want to hear you!
Parents – this is a community event – feel free to stick around to join in the fun!
Parking – I’m thinking parking will be a little tight at North on this day. Please plan on carpooling to North, or parking at Monticello Plaza and crossing the street (at the stoplight, in the cross walk, when the signal says walk!!!!)
Please let me know if you have any questions, and please let me know if your child cannot attend – I will be taking attendance.
