Alumni within driving distance! The Cadets want you to come where it all began - legendary Garfield, N.J. - on Tuesday, April 6 for a catered dinner, great friends and stories, plus a sneak preview of the 2010 corps.  

The Cadets administration team will host the upcoming Holy Name alumni meeting on April 6 at 7 p.m. as we build excitement for the fast-approaching season. The event at the VFW Hall on Outwater Lane will include dinner and feature video of the corps performing show material recorded during their most recent camp on March 26-28. Hear the most current version of Procession of Nobles, School for Scandal and other program material - without the trip to camp in Woodstown! 

Current members of the corps will also attend to meet and chat with alumni about their experience as a Cadet so far. Bring your photos and memorabilia to share, too! 

The April 6 meeting is the first of three joint ventures to reach out to alumni of all generations!  

“We’ve got great things happening on May 4 and Memorial Day weekend, too,” said Cadets Director George Hopkins. “Coming off an extraordinary 75th Anniversary season that engaged alumni of all ages, we plan to keep that energy and passion alive.” 

In observance of Cadets Heritage Month in May, the staff will host Heritage Night during the meeting on Tuesday, May 4. The evening will feature: 

  • Vintage t-shirts. Wear one to win a prize!
  • Special video clips of The Cadets from throughout the years.
  • Stories! Some classic Cadet lore from alumni! 

There’s MORE…

Memorial Day Weekend with The Cadets!

The end of May signifies what we’ve all been waiting for – Memorial Day and the beginning of summer! 

Alumni will again host the very special Memorial Mass on Sunday, May 30 at 10:30 a.m. at Holy Name Church in Garfield. And plans are in the works for a concert featuring The Cadets later that evening in North Jersey. 

On Monday, May 31, the good times continue as the corps performs in the Memorial Day Parade in Hawthorne, N.J. Following the Hawthorne parade, the Cadets will return with a concert in front of the reviewing stand as a gesture of thanks to the citizens of Hawthorne for their hospitality through the years, and as a salute to the Cadet alumni. 

A Post-Parade Pizza Party is scheduled following the parade at the American Legion Post #199, the Caballeros home post, as alumni and The Cadets organization join forces to put on a memorable holiday for every member.

Details on Memorial Day events will be released as they become finalized.
