  • 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.

  • A recap of the Glassmen Alumni Association Board of Directors meeting is now available on our website. Board members discussed this year’s DCI finals and surrounding social events; future planning for a performing ensemble; outreach; and merchandise, among other topics.

    Meeting recaps are available online once they have been approved by board vote at the following meeting. Past recaps and additional documents are also available at www.glassmenalumni.org/meetings. If you have questions, comments or concerns, please use the comments section.

  • 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.

  • Hi David… Thanks for posting. I passed this along to our executive committee. I wouldn’t plan on any fundraisers just yet, until we get some official news on the state of the corps. But either way ideas will be needed at some point. I would suggest keeping a written stockpile of your ideas for when we can use them! Again, unfortunately we don’t…[Read more]
