The 2016 COATESVILLE RED RAIDER MARCHING BAND has been nominated to represent Pennsylvania in Washington DC at "A  CAPITOL FOURTH" - America's Premiere Birthday Celebration which will commemorate America's 241st birthday and to march in the 2017 National Independence Day Parade on July 4th 2017 .

"A CAPITOL FOURTH" - America's Premiere Birthday Celebration is a three day event held in our Nation's Capitol which for the Band will include not only marching in the National Independence Day Parade down Constitution Avenue but also a guided tour of Historic Washington DC including all the Memorials & the Smithsonian Institute Museum, a visit to Arlington National Cemetery & the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to participate in a special US Military National Wreath Laying Ceremony,  attendance at a concert on the Capitol Lawn featuring the National Symphony Orchestra and  of course,  Fireworks !! 

It is a great honor for Coatesville Red Raider Marching Band to be nominated and given this awesome  opportunity to bask in the National Spotlight... if only for one day.  As always with opportunity comes responsibilty and this one brings with it a great financial undertaking for which we are asking for help from every man, woman & business who is reading this story about our incredible journey .  

Your generous donation will help each Coatesville Band Student cover the expense of transportation to and from Washington DC via Coach Bus, modest hotel accommodations for three nights, admission costs for the guided tours and meals for the participant.

The Red Raider Marching Band has less than nine months to raise enough funds to send about 100 people, band students & chaperones, on this Adventure of a Lifetime!!!

We need and greatly appreciate everyone's help.... pass the word!!

I hope the band members can attend and enjoy the city as much as I did in I think the 10th grade trip we took. I ended up in DC for college because of that trip. It is a wonderful city!
