Veteran's Day Parade Details

posted Nov 5, 2015, 5:40 AM by Quinten Petersen

8:30 a.m. Arrive at WLHS and help load equipment trailer and buses.

9:00 a.m. Leave for parade staging area.

11:00 a.m. Parade steps off

1 – 2 p.m. Approximate time of return (depending on our position within the parade)

Attendance: Attendance is required at ALL events. If an emergency arises, please notify Mr. Petersen immediately – cell phone (608) 217-6216

Uniform: As we are not marching, we will not be wearing our marching band uniforms. However, please represent our school proudly by wearing any warm WLHS clothing. The weather looks like it will be a great day, but do be prepared for the cooler temperatures and wind by the lake. (If you dress in layers and get too warm, you can stash the extra layers under your chair on the trailer.)

Transportation: We will travel by school bus to and from the parade site. Buses were generously donated by the WLHS Student Council. All students must return to WLHS on the bus following the parade in order to turn in their uniform.

Instruments: You are responsible for your instrument at all times. It should travel with you on the bus and return with you after the parade.

Parade Route: For a map of the parade route, please visit Parents, please come out and view the band as we play along the parade route. Show support not only for our band and school, but also for all those who have served or are currently serving our country.

Other Notes:

- Students will be given a sheet of plastic to put over their music for the parade to serve as a wind screen.

- There will be water available on the trailer, but it may be a good idea to pack a small snack if you need.

- When we’re not playing, wave to the crowd along the parade route. Thank Vets! Have fun!

- Our driver is a Veteran and is donating his time to drive for us. Be sure to recognize his act of service and thank him!

- At the end of the parade, we will unload the trailer and be shuttled back to the Harley Davidson Museum where our buses will pick us up and bring us back to WLHS. DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING ON THE SHUTTLE!

- Remember the purpose for the day: Thanking Veterans for their service to our country and the sacrifices they make.
