When the 2010 Cadets come to North Jersey, you better believe the Holy Name alumni chapter makes them feel welcome. It is the birthplace of The Cadets, after all!  

The Cadets traveled for the Memorial Weekend from Spring Training in Johnstown, Pa., for their An Evening with The Cadets concert and to perform in three parades in Northern New Jersey on Memorial Day. Coinciding with the appearances, the Holy Name alumni chapter held several events to celebrate the kick off  of a new season, including the 2nd Annual Memorial Mass on Sunday morning and a Pizza Party following the Hawthorne, N.J. parade on Monday.


Cadets Mike Daley, Tom Wilson and Sheila Heady participated in the 2nd Annual Memorial Mass held at the Church of the Most Holy Name in Garfield, N.J. The church is where the corps was founded in 1934. Pictured with the members is Rev. Msgr. William J. Reilly. Below, alumni following the service. (Photos courtesy of Scotty McGarry.)



Members of The Cadets percussion section gather at the Hawthorne American Legion Post #199 after the parade on Monday where the corps enjoyed a pizza and ice cream social hosted by the Holy Name alumni chapter. The chapter also presented baseball caps to members and staff as part of their annual Caps For Cadets program.
