Observer Today


Members of the WNY Alumni Drum Corps are pictured after participating in the General Pulaski Day Parade in Cheektowaga. Honorary Grand Marshal Loretta Swit, who played Major Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan on the television series “M*A*S*H,” helped lead off the WNY’s annual Pulaski Day Parade honoring Revolutionary War hero Casimir Pulaski. Some of the Corps members got to see Loretta in person. The Alumni Corps has a very active schedule this year with seven parades left this season. Anyone interested in marching this season can call Jack at 410-2682 for more information. The corps will next perform at the Southwestern Firemen’s Convention in Lakeshore on Aug. 8. The corps thanks all its friends and fans who helped make this year even better.

Overall, a very good season for Drum Corps

IMG_8473After performing last Sunday in the annual Silver Creek Grape Festival, The Western New York Alumni Drum Corps, Inc. will travel to Salamanca, NY for their Falling Leaves Festival October 5th. This is the final parade of the season for us. “Over all a very good season,” remarked Corps Director and Drum Major, Robert Teclaw. “We performed in eight parades, as well as playing a few concerts.” The corps is in the planning stages of their end of the season party. The party, for members, their families, along with instructors and guests should be a great time for all. The corps’ new season will start sometime in November. Anyone wishing to join can call Jack at 410-2682 for more info.
