September 7th is the deadline to purchase tickets for the Drum Corps Reunion to held Saturday, September 27th, 2003 in St Louis, MO.

There will be a memorabilia display as well as slide, video, and complete audio presentations of several of the area corps from 1954 through 1989. Guest speakers will be Roger Kaiser and Le Yaeger.

2003 is the 50th anniversary of the Belleville Black Knights and we are honored that Helen Creson, wife of the Black Knights' founder Forrest T. Creson, will be attending that evening.
Forrest Creson was instrumental in the Drum Corps movement in the 1950's and 1960's and was the Director of the Black Knights until he passed away on January 12, 1971.

Invitations have been sent out to over 1300 alumni members and new names are coming in daily. This will be an incredible event.....alumni are traveling from Florida, California, Texas, Oklahoma, and all over the United States to participate and renew old friendships.
