6th Annual Alumni Parade
Calling all Spartan Alumni: It’s time to dust off that horn. We want to hear you play! Whether you graduated last year or fifty years ago, we’d like to celebrate your musical background and the end of the 2017 school year by forming a mass band for a Milford community performance!
Consider this a formal invitation for you to join the current Milford High School Marching Spartans in honoring those who have died in our nation’s service by performing together at the 2017 Milford Memorial Day Parade.
The parade will take place on Monday, May 29th (weather permitting). We will meet on the lawn outside the music room (in front of the school) at 9:00 a.m. where we’ll form our parade block and run through the music. The parade will begin at the West Street Cemetery at 10:00 a.m. During the parade stops, feel free to step out of the parade block so that you can better observe each of the presentations. The parade will finish at the Milford VFW around 11:00 a.m. Please arrange a ride for yourself from the VFW as we will not be able to provide you with transportation back to the high school.
Plan to wear blue jeans and a past band shirt (or school colors – blue and white). Current students will wear their spartan uniforms.
Music will be available the morning of the parade. You will need to bring your own instrument and lyre (a limited quantity may be available to borrow) – percussion instruments will be available on a first some first serve basis. Selections for this year’s parade include: Battle Hymn of the Republic, Nearer My God to Thee, and The Star Spangled Banner.
If you are interested in developing and promoting this event in future years please contact me.

We look forward to performing with you again soon!!
