Memorial Day Parade

Marching Band Parents and Students:

The annual Memorial Day parade is coming up very quickly. In order to have a great parade, it is crucial that we have all of the last year’s fall marching band participating, including our graduating seniors.

Please see the schedule and reminders below.

Thank you for working hard to represent Lancaster High School positively throughout our community. We especially want to thank our graduating seniors for finishing strong with one final parade performance with the Band of Gold!
