6/25 Flag Day Ceremony

Hi Everyone,
Just a reminder that tomorrow is Medfords flag day ceremony. Please meet at 8:30am at Medford high school. We will put on our new uniforms (don’t forget black socks, shoes and gloves) colorguard will wear the black colorguard tshirt and black leggings/bottoms. Please don’t forget your instruments and folios (with patriot music). We will run through the music and then march down the hill to honor roll park for the ceremony. When the ceremony is done we will head back to the high school to take off the uniforms and then everyone is invited to the Medford Elks for breakfast. Transportation will not be provided, I would suggest carpooling as parking might be limited.
See you all in the morning!
