"CORPS TEN HUT!!!"
Hard work, discipline, dedication, practice in the sun, bus rides, excitement before the performances, crowd applause, friendships... Is this the Mandarins of the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s or today? In reality it is all of the above. While the names and faces have changed over the years, the Mandarins values have remained constant throughout our 45+ years of history.
The Mandarins Drum and Bugle Corps is thriving as much now as ever before. It is great to see our corps continue to field a quality show, while having a very positive impact on new members every year. There are alumni of many corps such as the Bridgemen, 27th Lancers, Kingsmen and even Freelancers who would love to see their old corps resurrected to the competitive field. As Mandarins alumni, you have the privilege of rooting for your home corps.
We ask for your help in contributing to this scholarship drive. Your contribution will go towards offsetting tour fees for Mandarins scholarship recipients who are in financial need and who exhibit the time-honored Mandarins values.
We hope your association with the Mandarins touched you positively. You may have good friends that you met while marching in Mandarins, your son or daughter may have been positively influenced by Mandarins values or you may be a fan who has enjoyed watching the Mandarins performances. Please help by giving back so that others might also benefit from their experience with the Mandarins.
