 The summer is over and we're now in fall colors. We have been quiet this summer enjoying a mild civic schedule compared to a full competitive field schedule. We did complete six parades, Racine Raider halftimes, and one-or-two other civic events. Oh ya, we can't forget about our jam session at Brewfest.  Thank you to those who came out and marched parades or cheered from the side.
Salute! 
We are working hard to finalize details for 2018 and planning to change colors with the new season, shhh. 
 
We will hold Open House in December and February at Gilmore Middle School. The weekends will include section rehearsal sessions learning the 2018 production.   We'll provide details in our next issue of Syne. Or visit us on FaceBook, Instragram, or Twitter.
We can't wait to meet YOU!!!
