The High School Band will be marching in the Annual Bay City St. Patrick's Day Parade this Sunday, March 22. Students should arrive in uniform with raincoats at the Temple Israel on the corner of Center and Green at 1:15 PM. The parade begins at 2:00 PM. The WHS Band will be #28 in the parade (which is the first band!). Hopefully this means that we will be finishing the parade around 3:00 PM. Parents must pick up their students at the end of the parade. The parade ends at the corner of Water and Center, but it is recommended that parents arrange to meet their students a few blocks from there as traffic is thick at that point. The Band Trailer will be available at the end of the parade to take only percussion equipment and sousaphones. All other students should plan to take their instrument home.



The band room will be open from noon to 12:15 pm on Sunday for anyyone who forgot their instrument. don't be late. Also - despite the weather, we will be marching unless they cancel the whole parade (which never happens). Bring your raincoat! You can wear anything you like under your uniform to keep warm - just as long as we can not see it!



We'll be playing the Fight Song and also Thriller Beginning at measure 9.
