On Saturday, July 28th, 2018 we will be performing at The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. This will be an opportunity for our members to showcase their talents, bond and have a special event to celebrate all of their hard work.
Reporting time is 8:45AM. We will be leaving from the New York Chinese School at 9:15AM sharp in order to arrive at the Intrepid at 9:45AM. Our performance time will be at 10:30AM on the flight deck. The performance will be approximately 0:20 minutes. After the performance we will spend the afternoon at the museum. We will leave the museum by 3:00PM, and expect to return to the School around 3:30PM. Due to the early start and late return, you may arrange for drop-offs and pick-up at the Intrepid with written request to us. Should you require special arrangements, please speak with a staff member. Moreover, this will take place instead of rehearsal for this day.
Permission slips and payment for Intrepid performance due.
Remember Summer rehearsals move to Saturdays.

Independence Day Parade in honor of the Bicentennial of the construction of the Erie Canal:
It was on July 4, 1817 that the first spade of earth was turned at Rome, New York on the construction of one of the most important public works project in American history — the 362 mile Erie Canal from Albany to Buffalo. The Canal connected New York harbor with the Great Lakes and spurred the growth of New York City into the nation’s largest metropolis. This year’s LMHA parade will celebrate this event with a parade starting at Federal Hall on Wall Street going down to Bowling Green/Evacuation Day Plaza and then to the South Street Seaport.
This activity will begin from the steps of Federal Hall on Saturday July 2, around 12:30 pm, as an Old Fashioned Independence Day Parade, similar to the parade sponsored by the LMHA in the past two years. It will begin with speeches from New York political leaders and a reading of excerpts from DeWitt Clinton’s 1815 New York Memorial by a DeWitt Clinton reenactor. It will then be led by the Veteran Corps of Artillery-State of New York, followed by the Color Guard of the Sons of the Revolution of the State of New York, the Sons of the American Revolution and various other patriotic groups, including the Colonial Dames of America. The Richmond County Fife & Drum Corps and other bands will also participate. There will be a further stop at Bowling Green/Evacuation Day Plaza for more speeches and entertainment and then will proceed to the South Street Seaport where the director of the South Street Seaport Museum will speak about the importance of the Canal to the Port of New York.
We will participate in the 2017 P.S. 124 Parent Education Fair. The purpose of the fair is to provide P.S.124 parents information about resources and activities locally available to them; to help parents support their children’s education. We will be showcasing the Corps and recruiting new members.
