Rose Hills Memorial Day Celebration ~ Monday May 28th 11am 

The Warren band has been invited to perform at the Rose Hills Memorial Day Celebration. In fact we were invited over a year ago. This event has been on the calendar since that time - over a year ago. We performed at this event in May of 2016 and it was a very pleasant and enjoyable way to spend part of our memorial day. I encourage all families to attend this will touch your heart! Call time for students is 9am. We will transport students via school bus to and from the event. It is free to attend, but it does fill up so you will want to arrive early with the band. We will also need chaperones and a trailer driver. The picture to the left was taken when we performed at this event in 2016. See itinrary below.
