Those tall guys dressed in black
and red uniforms are various alumni, back in East Orange for the
Thanksgiving Day holiday and spending the time with their
favorite Band, joining them in the parade and later in the
performance. Ms Saez broke her ankle this past week, but joined
the parade in a wheel chair.
The visiting alumni of the East
Orange Unified marching Band. See how many you can identify from
their past photos in the photo galleries, when they, too, were
little kids discovering that they were a Band family and never
forgetting it once they left for college and other adult
Ms Saez, Band Parent President,
leads the Band off the field in her wheelchair.

Back at Cicely Tyson High School,
the Band performs their last "tunnel dance" of the
season. For the seniors, everything from now on will be the
"last" and next year they will be joining the ranks of
the alumni. Cherish the memories as you live them.
