32nd Annual Flag Day Parade and 5th Quarter June 8, 2013
This was the scene 1pm, June 8 as the UW Marching Band unit organized in front of IRIS for Appleton’s 63rd Annual Flag Day Parade. 36 members, many of them local kids, strutted their best for the two mile parade and then, after food and a little rest, played a 5th Quarter concert at City Park. The crowd was huge and thrilled. It was the best. Hope you got a chance to be there.
Thanks to so many of you who helped us raise $3200 needed to Bring Back the Band. You purchased our Bucky Stripes Hats and Headbands and made direct contributions. Our partners in this effort included Patricia Schneider, whose son is a member of the band, Nancy Scheuerman and the UW Alumni Association Fox Valley Chapter, and Greg Ottis and the Appleton Downtown Association. Jan Beck and her husband, also with a son in the band, helped with food and logistics. We are grateful for corporate support from The Business Bank of the Fox River Valley and Jim Mathes, Kerber, Rose & Associates. This was another valuable IRIS community project!
