School Daze 11/29/09


The Nor'east wind did not ruin a great parade on Saturday 11/28/09.

The Greater Derry/Londonderry Chamber of Commerce Parade was once again an Alvirne success! The Union Leader, (B-1) this morning had a story about the parade and low and behold there was a picture of the Alvirne Drum Line with the caption "Alvirne High School marching band's drum line won over the crowd as most spirited, dressed as elves as they marched down Broadway during yesterday's annual holiday parade." I'll bring in the article and pictures to school tomorrow. Speaking of tomorrow - don't forget to sign up for the Derry Tree lighting this Sunday night December 6.
