Marking Time: A History of Drum & Bugle Corps in Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Thank you for supporting this exciting project!
Since drum & bugle corps ended in Cedar Rapids years ago, its history has been held in the hands of individuals who happened to save documents, medals, photos, and uniform parts. As this generation departs, that knowledge will disappear. By preserving the stories of the people who contributed to drum & bugle corps, we continue the tradition of instilling pride in our community through this unique activity. Just as when a building is demolished, that history is forever gone, it's vital to capture the stories of these people before their stories are forever lost.
