Dear marching band member and parent,
This email contains information regarding the Martin Luther King Jr. Parade on Monday, January 15. Call time is 1:30pm at 5th/3rd Bank in downtown Lincolnton (off Main Street… same meeting place as the Lincolnton Christmas Parade). Dress will be full uniforms. Don’t forget long black dress socks for the uniforms and shirt for under the jacket. We will load the truck with instruments and uniforms on that Friday (1/12). Please make sure that your personal instrument makes it either on the truck after school OR goes home with you! We should be done by 3:30pm (we will dismiss at the bank). The parade begins at the Cultural Center on Main Street and move west towards the courthouse. We may be asked to play the national anthem as well. Parade music link is below. Please have this music memorized before Monday! Hard copies are available in the band room!
As this parade was on the original schedule sent out last April, this parade is MANDATORY for all marching band members, INCLUDING GUARD! As we only do this parade every 4 years, it is important that we show our support to the community and show up in force! Please make every effort to be there on time and prepared. Parades are important community service events, and our community does SUPPORT this program 🙂. Of course, if there is an issue, please let me know ASAP.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
