Who is ready for a parade?!

Thank you!!

We had a great turnout this Saturday! Thank you to all of the parents and students who dedicated their Saturday to helping us start of the year right! Our coolers have been sanitized, storage room cleaned, trailers and vehicles washed, white boards hung among many other things! We are thankful for your generosity and look forward to another great year!


Fourth of July Parade

Rehearsal – July 3rd from 8:00 am – 11:00 am at the Trojan Band Room.

Have you started drinking – WATER?

Please make sure your student is dressed to practice in the heat and that he or she brings water to drink, preferably in a personal water jug. Students will receive their parade t-shirts and new band students will also get their band shorts. Returning members may purchase a new pair of shorts for $15.

July 4th People’s Parade

8:00AM Load the trailer at the Band Room

9:00AM Report to United Community Bank behind Dairy Queen

10:00AM Parade Steps Off

*The parade ends at the Robinson Salvage (formerly K-Mart) and Sit & Sleep parking lot. Please have your parent pick you up from this parking lot. A good idea is for your parents to park at the end of the parade and watch us as we cross the finish line : ) Traffic is usually easier to navigate on this side of town after the parade. If you have a large instrument it is easy to access the band room by taking the bypass, too.

Volunteer Sign Up

Please go to the following link to volunteer the day of the parade. We will have 4 water stations along the parade route for the band. Coolers will be in the band garage the morning of the parade. They will be labeled and ready to go! You will simply pick up the cooler and take it to your assigned location. After the parade, you will return it to the band room. **We still need a few volunteers**
