The band’s latest victory came over the weekend, when both the band and flag corps earned first places at the Fort Vallonia Days parade.

The band and flag corps also earned honors at the Seymour Oktoberfest Parade, and at the Canaan Fall Festival Parade.

Leading this year’s band is senior drum major Tifani Rider; while junior Tabitha Arnoldy leads the flag corps.

The band is under the direction of Tammy Beitzel.
