alumni event sqCalling all alumni, former staff members, volunteers and friends of the corps!  Join us on Saturday, July 27th for the annual "Gathering of the Clans" Alumni Reunion!

Events for the day will kick off in the morning as the Pioneer Performance Corps participates in the 2019 South Milwaukee Heritage Days Parade. The parade steps off at 11am from 8th and Milwaukee Avenues and heads west on Milwaukee to 16th Avenue, then turns north before ending at South Milwaukee Lionsfest. Come watch the parade and cheer on Pioneer, or put on a uniform and join the corps in the parade!

Participation in the parade is open to Pioneer alumni, staff, volunteers, as well as supporters of the organization. Persons interested in participating in the parade can complete the Parade Application at the following link:

Following the parade, join us at Pioneerland for the "Gathering of the Clans" Alumni Reunion. This is a great opportunity to catch up with other alumni and reminisce about your experiences in drum corps. Guests are also free to tour the grounds during this time and check out the Performance Corps as they rehearse. In addition, everyone is invited to stay for a special meal prepared by the Pioneer cook staff.

In the evening, Pioneer Percussion and Performance Corps members will experience Tradition Night and the accompanying bonfire. During this annual ceremony, the history of the corps is revisited and current members are awarded their membership necklace. Alumni are invited to attend Tradition Night, and are welcome to share their positive marching experiences in support of the history of the corps.
