Members of Preston Scout House Band will salute their friends from Simcoe United Alumni drum corps at an autumn open house to be held at Preston Knights of Columbus building, 333 Speedsville Road from 1 to 4 pm on Sunday October 25. (Rehearsal will take place from 1 to 3 pm with a social hour to follow from 3 to 4 pm).

Members of the Simcoe organization are welcome to attend to swap stories, enjoy light refreshments and salute Canada’s original and longest continuously operating alumni drum and bugle corps, flourishing from the fall of 1998 until the final performance on October 10.

The ties between the two groups have remained strong, with many individuals marching with one group then the other through the years.

More information about the open house is available from Jade Squire , at scouthousebandpartner@gmail.com

Your 2014 DCA Alumni Spectacular performance was excellent! Your band continues to get better and better each year, keep it up! So many of us in the crowd continued to clap in time with your marching tune as your band as you did the final parade procession in front of the stands. I hope you realize how enjoyable it was for folks to watch your performance. All the Best, ,
