BLUE KNIGHTS HOUSING
We successfully "housed" the Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps last Saturday and Sunday at Gahr High School! Thank you to all the students who came to check out the Blue Knights during their rehearsals and who went to the DCI Glendora Drum Corps show at Citrus College. If you were unable to make it, check out this clip of them rehearsing in our stadium!
We're hosting the DCI So Cal Classic at Gahr High School and we need all hands on deck to make this fundraiser a success! Our last planning meeting is tomorrow, Monday (7/7/14) at 6:30 p.m. in the Band Room.
