Central Majorettes in Washington, DC

Central Majorettes in Washington, DC

We attended the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC with the Band and CM Chandler as director.  I was a freshman at the time and we were there when Regan was shot and were able to go by the place.  Then as we were Seniors we were able to go back and revisit the same places and march in the parade again.  I would love to see if the pictures of the entire band were still hanging in the Band Room or if we could see them….. Thank you for asking Chattanooga Central!”
