    Calling All Band Alumni!

    All alumni of the Delone Catholic High School Band (marching or concert, any graduation year) are cordially invited to play in the bleachers with the current Marching Band at the upcoming homecoming game on Friday, Oct. 13, 2017. Mr. Yealy can supply some drums, but most alumni will need to bring their own instruments. Color Guard alumni and former instrumentalists who do not have access to an instrument are also invited to join us in the bleachers. All participants are asked to register online by Wednesday Sept. 27. Playing participants are kindly asked to make a one-time $5 donation at the game to help the band purchase additional copies of the iconic "yellow books" for alumni to use.  If possible, participants should plan to meet in the bleachers around 6 p.m. on Oct. 13. Contact byealy@delonecatholic.org with any questions. We hope to see you there!
