Photo Gallery highlights a remarkable year

2010 Cadets' season comes to a close


From the audition camp last November to their last performance in Indianapolis nine months later, the 2010 season for The Cadets was one full of joy, laughter, discovery, and - without question - friendship and family.  Toy Souldier will forever remain in the corps’ history books as a show to remember! To close out another memorable season for The Cadets, we present our 2010 Photo Gallery.  

The 76th version of The Cadets was special in every way! With nearly 90 rookies on the field, and a show that once again set trends in the activity, The Cadets displayed joy in their craft with every single performance, and brought fans to their feet from one stadium to the next! 

The Cadets moved in a week earlier and spent more than a month a Spring Training in Johnstown, Pa. The Memorial Mass and holiday parades that followed in North Jersey allowed alumni, parents, supporters and fans to start the summer season off right. After The Cadets unique summer season opener in Allentown in mid-June, their Summer Tour took them as far west as Denver, Colo., the Midwest and into Texas and the Southeast. For nearly seven long weeks, fans on the East Coast waited patiently for their beloved Maroon and Gold to return.  

And when they did – it was a homecoming like no other! August included two Cadets-hosted shows in West Chester, Pa., and Clifton, N.J., that drew alumni, fans and supporters of the corps by the thousands! The Cadets home show in Clifton also included a special combined performance with the Alumni Corps and Colorguard.

The corps celebrated its newest class of the Cadets Hall of Fame in Garfield, N.J., and a new initiative – the Cadets Hall of Honored Veterans – that bestowed recognition to 13 veterans and active duty military who also wore Maroon and Gold. 

In Indianapolis for DCI World Championships, the Cadets’ celebrations continued as alumni and family made the trip to root for the corps. The last weekend of the season included a Pre-Semi’s Social, the Championship Breakfast and the Annual Awards Banquet, bringing together members with hundreds of family members, donors, volunteers and alumni. 

Special thanks to every 2010 Cadet who worked so hard and achieved so much, their families whose support never wavered, our donors who always ensure the corps’ longevity, every volunteer who unselfishly gives their time and every Cadets’ alumnus who has carried on the name. 

For Holy Name Shall Always Be…
