Glassmen Make Move Back To Maumee
The GLASSMEN Drum & Bugle Corps has moved their administrative offices just southwest of Toledo to a downtown location in the historic city of Maumee. Recently named an "All American City", Maumee has spent decades following the progress of the corps – after all, Maumee, Ohio was where it all began. The Maumee Suns, founded in 1961, developed into the GLASSMEN we know and love today.
The new GLASSMEN office is located at 117 West Wayne Street, in a building that is part of the Maumee Uptown Historic District, and listed as part of the National Register of Historic Places. Nestled in the midst of downtown businesses, shops, and boutiques, the prime storefront location gives the public greater access to the corps and staff, and increases the visibility of the corps and its ENTERTRAINMENT arts programs in the area. A few doors down is the local Maumee Mirror weekly publication, and not far up the road is Maumee High School – home to dozens of drum corps shows hosted by the corps in the 1960’s, and the site of current GLASSMEN events such as the spring Showcase Concert.
