Racine Scouts Ice Cream Social And Concert
The Racine Explorer Scouts, America’s oldest continually active junior drum and bugle corps, will commemorate their 80th anniversary with the revival of an old tradition; an ice cream social and birthday party. This event will be held on Sunday afternoon, May 27th 2007 in Racine.
A long standing tradition, the spring ice-cream socials were instituted in 1936 by the corps’ original booster organization, the Mother’s Club. The annual event was an opportunity for the corps to perform their musical program for the community and also to raise much needed funds.
This year’s event will highlight the bonds between the Racine Scouts, the Madison Scouts, and The Cavaliers. Originally formed as a Boy Scout troop in 1927, the Racine corps was responsible in part for the formation of the Madison Scouts (1938) and the Cavaliers (1948)
The pinnacle of the May 27th gala will be an outdoor standstill concert, with guest appearances by Capital Sound, the Kilties, Pioneer, the Racine Scouts, the Racine Scouts alumni corps, the Cavaliers, and the Cavaliers Alumni Corps. This is an event no serious drum corps fan will want to miss! Food and beverage will be available on site, along with opportunities to purchase souvenir items from all of the participating organizations.
Ticket information for the gala can be found at www.racinescouts.com, or by calling 262-634-2166. Proceeds from this event will go to the Racine Scouts endowment and scholarship fund.
