Formed almost 10 years ago the De La Salle Oakland Crusaders Alumni is designed to provide a mechanism for all of us to re-connect and stay in touch.
In an effort to galvanize and gather the folks who marched with the different iterations of the corps – from the Blue & Gold, De La Salle, to the Oakland Crusaders, we are making sure that this initiative includes – instructors, members, family, friends and supporters.
What we have done so far is start a comprehensive database to contact members, a mission statement, direction and bylaws. We have several years of successful activities under our belts and we recognized the members of the original 1958 corps at ZACK NITE 5, the 1969 corps in honour of the 40th anniversary of the 1969 Canadian Championships at Zack Nite 6 and we support The DOCA Brass Ensemble.
In 2010 we ran Zack Nite 7, honoring The Crusader Family of our rich history. The theme is All things Crusaders! The 35th Anniversary of the formation of the Oakland Crusaders and the 40th Anniversary of the founding of the Etobicoke Crusaders.
2010 also marks the 100th Anniversary of the formation of the De La Salle Band! A rich history indeed! We are rebuilding the De La Salle Drum Corps site to reflect that. Listen to the history of Del – Download the Podcast courtesy Dice Man Radio
