Jim Tallo and Linda O'Connor from Cardinals Alumni Association present Arbella with check at December rehearsal

Thank you Cardinals Alumni Association!

On December 3rd we were honored to have the famous Jim Tallo from the Cardinals Alumni Association drop by rehearsal to present to us a donation from the Cardinals!

Jim has been involved with drum and bugle corps, winter color guard and youth organizations for over 50 years.  Through Jim’s diligent and dedicated efforts, he has awarded over a million dollars in scholarships to youth in the area.  He has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Kiwanis International, inducted into the Massachusetts Drum Corps Hall of Fame in 2003, and this past summer, was awarded the DCI Volunteer of the Year at DCI Finals in Indianapolis.  He has lived a life of passion for and service to this activity that is an inspiration to us all!

It means alot to have the support of our friends in the local drum corps community, and we thank Jim and the Cardinals Alumni Association for believing in us and helping us get closer to our fundraising goals for this season!
