The news was announced yesterday, May 7, that the North Hardin Band will be attending the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City in 2015. This is a major accomplishment and honor for the Trojan band. It wouldn’t have been possible without our talented students, dedicated directors and amazing boosters.
The announcement was made by representatives of Macy’s in a surprise gathering for the students. In attendance were Fort Knox Garrison Commander, Colonel Edwards and Command Sergeant Major Robinson. Various Hardin County dignitaries were also on hand to celebrate the news.
Macy’s presented the North Hardin band with a new drum head to remind them of what they will be working towards over the next 18 months as the students practice and raise funds.
The Trojan Band was selected to be one of 10 marching bands to perform, beating out more than 175 applicants nationwide.
