Dear Alumni Band,
We are honored to be invited to Brenham for the Maifest Parade. The parade is Saturday, May 3rd at 10:00am.
For those in Austin we will meet at Moton Crockett’s Office Parking Lot, 317 S. Congress around 7:00am so we can head out by 7:30am to caravan to Brenham. Let us know if you are interested in joining the caravan, so we don’t leave without anyone.
For anyone who has not been before this is a lot of fun and they take very good care of us. They feed us well and let us go around downtown TWICE on a trailer!!! There is FREE: BBQ, Blue Bell Ice Cream, and Beer at the park following the parade. And they always have a very generous donation to the scholarship fund which is what it is all about!
