On Saturday evening the Marching Lancer Band and Colorguard were joined by Senator Jeanne Shaheen for a banquet to celebrate their return from the Tournament of Roses parade. Senator Shaheen congratulated the Lancers and shared a story as her days a clarinet player in her high school band.
The Lancers took time to look back at their trip which included performances at Disneyland, the Staples Center for the LAKings, the Roses Bandfest, and on New Years Day, the nationally broadcast Tournament of Roses Parade.
The evening so included reading of congratulatory letters from NH Governor John Lynch and Senator Kelly Ayotte. Tournament of Roses President Jeff Throop also phoned in to thank the Lancers via speakerphone.
