I know some of you are starting to plan your summer schedules. We are still very tentative (no school calendar out yet), so please pencil this in – it may change. Here’s what we’d like to do with Marching 100, as long as the school calendar works out:

  • June-July – Tuesday evenings, 6-8:30pm
  • Red Bud Fireman’s Parade – Sunday, June 30
  • America’s Birthday Parade – Thursday, July 4
  • Music Camp – TBA – mid July – 10am-2pm
  • Band Camp – July 29 – August 8 – 8am-5pm. This is the tentative one, depending on when school starts. If we need to make a change, we’ll bump it back to July 22 – August 1.
  • We’re just trying to get information out early – we’ll let you know once we can solidify it!
