Veteran’s Day 2021

This Veteran’s Day marks a full return of events for the band. Over the past year we have slowly returned to performing for various events. Memorial Day 2021 saw an abbreviated parade in Winchester. Fourth of July we had the honor to kick off the Raymond NH parade. Labor Day we were welcomed back in the Milford NH Labor Day parade and in October we were once again back at Austin Prep for their convocation. We look forward to finishing out November with leading the procession of the Blue Mass again at Austin Prep. We look forward to a busier 2022. Read More

Memorial Day 2019

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place, and in the sky,
The larks, still bravely singing, fly,
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
(John McCrae)
