Kendall FD Parade 2017

by Maria on September 2nd, 2017

It's been a few years since we marched in Kendall. It was nice to be back and marching with the East Battalion Fire Departments

We were in line behind a vehicle with an LED light bar mounted on the its roof. The light was very bright and, shining at eye level, was blinding us. Margaret, who was marching in the front row, ran up to the vehicle and asked them if they could turn off the light bar. Problem solved.

For the first time this season, there were six trumpets: Doug, Mike B., Tyler, Matt H., Tom and Bob. This inspired us to play some of our "power" tunes in the beer tent. Irene was so excited, she kept calling tunes until it got too dark to see.

The low brass was represented by Zach on trombone, Anya on baritone and Josh on sousaphone. Irene played flute, Karen R. and Jodi played clarinet. Margaret and Steve cut their vacation one day short so they could be back in time to play alto sax in this parade. Maria and Jack played tenor sax. Scott M. played snare, Andy played bass drum and Kristen played cymbals.

Our next event is the Hilton Fire Department Parade on July 13. See you there!
