EVENT DATE: Aug 11, 2012
This summer I am marching with the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps. We are starting out in California and traveling East, performing the whole way. This is my sixth year of drum corps and it every year has been a fantastic experience of new friendships, improved musical skill, and perserverence through long days in the hot summer sun. The end result has never been dissapointing and we can always use your support!
