Calling all alumni for the Stephenville High School Yellow Jacket Band.
You’re invited to march with current band members in the Fourth of July Parade scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. with participants lining up in the Chihuahua’s parking lot at 8:30 a.m.
"It’s a chance for the previous generations of the YJB to connect with current band members and have some fun with everyone involved," Band Director Mike Childs said.
Childs said a rehearsal will be held at 9 a.m. on July 3 at the high school. He said everyone should wear comfortable clothing for practicing. Attire for the actual parade is jean shorts, tennis shoes and a red, white or navy blue shirt.
Childs said the route for the band will be the same as last year beginning on Mary Street and ending at the courthouse annex building downtown.
Childs said this is the third year for alumni to participate and the first year there were only five or six joining in the fun. Last year the number grew to about 15 and Childs said he would like to see 50/50 participation this year.
