And The Band Plays On . . .

We (high school band with grade 8 support) will meet at 7:15 am to rehearse for the Memorial Day Ceremony in the Auditorium of the high school. Wear concert-like attire (formal wear) to show respect for the occasion. We will play the "Hopedale Alma Mater," the version of "America" that we started preparing, "A Kind and Gentle Soul," and maybe "You're a Grand Old Flag." Please be on-time. The community will appreciate our involvement. Two trumpet players still need to be ready to play Taps also.

Hello,

The Memorial Day Parade may be affected by the weather (Tropical Storm Bonnie). If the parade is cancelled, notification will appear as a post on this page as soon as it is available. We will not be able to march if it is raining. Students playing Taps or singing the National Anthem may be asked to show up with umbrellas ready.
