Belleville Black Knights plan September reunion

The Belleville Black Knights Drum & Bugle Corps will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2003. There will be a Drum Corps Reunion banquet for all Southern Illinois drum corps alumni September 27 in St. Louis, MO, at the Millennium Hotel.

The planning committee is trying to track down all of the Southern Illinois drum corps members. Send your address, corps affiliation and the year(s) you were a member to Steve McCarty via e-mail at or call him at (618) 234-8513. If you have any information on other members (e-mail address, street address, or even the city they live in), please also send it. McCarty can also be contacted for information on reservations.

The committee is also looking for any Black Knights, Crusaders, Bellettes, Gabrielettes, etc. paraphernalia for the reunion: photos, movies/video tapes, audio recordings, contest programs, or anything else you might think to be of interest.
