Indian Band Alumni need your help!
« on: October 23, 2012, 02:11:29 PM »
We are looking for a former band members that marched in the very first Marching I!   We would like to interview them and recognize them at the Homecoming game during the band alumni reunion!   We have not been able to figure out the exact year of the first Marching I but we know it started in the early to mid 60's!  Feel free to send me a pm if anyone knows this info!

BTW...there was a great photo and article in yesterdays PANEWS on the front page about the reunion!   Maybe someone can post the link here!

The thing about being an Indian is that you're an Indian, no matter what. It doesn't matter if you play soccer or a tuba, it doesn't matter if you're on the football team or the drill team, it doesn't matter if you lead the cheers or the jeers. You're still part of that "Honor, Pride, & Tradition."

Thanks!  So, it seems my info about when the marching I originated was incorrect!   One of the Alumni spoke with Mrs James who wrote the words to Cherokee and she said it was first performed in the 50's!  We would really like to find someone that was in the first Marching I,if possible!
