JFK Band and Friends Reunion

Bring your own picnic – that means everything you need/want.
Aside from securing permits, nobody is “in charge”,
so the rest is up to YOU! Bring your instrument(s)!
We have great drum majors response, so start spreading the word
to your alum band members, choir members too!


new_circle_icon_green[1]  …to band families who donated food, snacks, supplies,
and time for successful band camp!

…to the Gury Family for your generous donation
in memory of Richard and Marilyn Gury, longtime
supporters of the Marching Band, Color Guard and Drum Line.

…to those who made purchases from the Band’s Fireworks Booth.
We also had a great team of sellers staffing the booth
and achieved our highest sales ever!

…to Big Day of Giving donors. Your generosity helped
us raise over $3,300!

…belatedly to the Oto-Wong Family for hosting the
Teriyaki Chicken dinner for the entire band last year
prior to the first field competition in October 2015!
