Albany Marching Falcons help celebrate Veterans Day -- Nov. 11, 2011

Before leading Albany's 56th annual Veterans Day Parade on Nov. 11, the City School District of Albany Marching Falcons performed at a flag-raising ceremony outside William S. Hackett Middle School. Check out photos from the event below (click on each picture to view a larger version).

 

The flag that was raised was flown in the band's honor in Washington, D.C., when it performed at President Obama's first Memorial Day Parade in 2009. Local Boy Scouts and veterans also participated in the ceremony, helping to properly lower the tattered flag and replace it with the crisp new one. Following the ceremony, the band led the city's annual parade, and then performed at the VA Hospital on Holland Avenue.

 

"We are trying to bring home the importance of the Veterans Day holiday to our students," said Bryan Cady, the band's director. "That it's not just a day off from school. There is a good reason for it and people who have sacrificed for our country attached to it."

 

The Marching Falcons feature district students in grades 4-12. Visit the Marching Falcons' website to learn more about the program and upcoming performances.
