August 24, 2010 – Katy, Texas – To the neighborhood communities of Green Trails, Nottingham Country and Memorial Parkway: Despite the 100+ heat index, you came out to support our first ever Taylor Band Community Parade and March-A-Thon.  While we previewed our new 51’ equipment trailer and performed 20 mini-concerts along the 6 mile route through the neighborhoods, you provided treats and much encouragement.  Thanks to the people who made signs, carried balloons, and even put money into our buckets.  Lots of young children danced and a few even “marched” along with us for a few blocks.  During our route, we saw friends from the 7 Lakes Band, Taylor Pacesetters and even a few of our alumni and their parents – thanks for coming out to cheer us on!  Thanks are also due to numerous fire trucks that blazed the route, 9 constable cars that provided safe passage on our streets, and various EMS personnel who stayed with us all day.  Our 300 marchers were also supported by over 50 Band Booster volunteers who dedicated their day to keeping the students hydrated, sun screened, and fed.  With your help, we raised over $15,000.00 to support the Taylor Band programs and our trip the perform at this year’s Sugar Bowl.
