Last year, we renamed Black Friday as “Glass Friday” for all Glassmen alumni and supporters. It’s a weekend many of us attended our first Glassmen camp and a day look back and think about how the corps helped you become who you are today. It’s also a chance to reconnect with your Glassmen family by reaching out to someone you’ve lost touch with.

Take part in our upcoming holiday by commenting here or joining the Facebook event and leaving a message on the event page for an alum, staff member, volunteer or fan who made your Glassmen experience unforgettable! Invite them to this event, tag them and let them know how much you appreciate it.

Reconnecting is more important than shopping, but we didn’t forget that Glass Friday is also Black Friday. Consider these shopping options:

igive125x75IGIVE-LOGO1) iGive.com: Register and designate “Glassmen Alumni Association” as your charity to shop online at more than 1,500 retailers, including Barnes & Noble, Toys R Us, Kohl’s, Bed Bath & Beyond and Best Buy.

images2) Amazon Smile: Choose “Glassmen Alumni Association” as your charity and take advantage of this year’s Black Friday deals on Amazon.

Using both of these options, a small percentage of your purchase goes to the GAA, to be used for initiatives storage of valuable Glassmen memories and future projects.

The Glassmen Alumni Association Board of Directors would like to extend our gratitude to our dedicated Glassmen volunteers.

20130208-205604.jpgLast year, two longtime Glassmen volunteers, Carol Dewan and Tina Jameson, assembled a cookbook of corps recipes with the help of several contributors. These recipes will not only offer alumni, staff and volunteers a nostalgic keepsake; they’ll also contribute to drum corps and other organizations that need to feed a large group on a tight budget.

Carol and Tina have graciously donated the last batch of cookbooks for the GAA to sell. Sales of these books will contribute to our expenses, such as storing our treasured Glassmen memorabilia and purchasing merchandise to sell to alumni and fans.

If you missed buying one on the first round, stay tuned. They’ll be available for sale online soon. Don’t miss this chance to get your very own Glassmen Drum & Bugle Corps cookbook, made with love from our volunteers.

G-WestAs you may already know, the Glassmen Alumni Association is renting a storage unit holding a significant amount of memorabilia donated by the Glassmen Drum and Bugle Corps.

Storage is roughly $75 per month, plus we have several measures that need to be taken in the future for safely storing items long term. Please visit our Glassmen Experience website to view items we are selling to help offset this monthly cost.

For $25, you can purchase an 8×10 print of the watercolor painting of G-West that alumni parent Dianna Porter created for our alumni auction. This beautiful print provides a nice keepsake of the Glassmen, while helping the Glassmen Alumni Association maintain the archives. Your help is greatly appreciated!
