The Reunion was a great event a good time was had by all

Graniteers Reunion

On July 25 2009, the Graniteers Drum and Bugle Corps of Rochester, N.H. held their first reunion since they disbanded over 50 years ago. The well-attended event was held at the Elks' Lodge and several past members traveled from Canada, California, New York, Maryland and Florida to be part of this historic affair. Drum corps, naturally, was the topic of the evening. The group also recalled their proud participation in President John F. Kennedy's inaugural parade in 1961 and their exhibition at the New York World's Fair in 1964. A memorial was held with the playing of taps by the corps' soloist, David Duchesneau as Wayne Nichols read the names of 21 known corps members who have passed away followed by a prayer by former member the Rev. Daniel Gilbert.
