| |

The Mandarins is pleased to announce its Hall of Fame inductees for the Class of 2024. The Mandarins Hall of Fame was established in 2018 to preserve the memory of the special people who have brought honor to the Mandarins organization and who can serve as role models for current and future generations.

Esther Mar began as a parent volunteer in 1982 when the corps began rebuilding. Joining her husband Ray on a new administrative staff, she served as the corps’ treasurer, bringing her finance and banking expertise to the organization. Shortly after, she served as the president of the Booster Club, which soon enabled the re-emerging corps to begin embarking on big tours. For over 30 years, Esther volunteered at bingo, took the lead on souvenirs and merchandise, and chaperoned every winter guard performance, corps camp, and summer tour. During those years, she also regularly opened her home to members from out of town, becoming their corps mom, mentor, and role model.
