THE 101 CONNECTION!
SCSU MARCHING 101 ALUMNI BAND NEWSLETTER: January 2014
About the 101 Connection!
The 101 Connection is the quarterly newsletter created for the SCSU Marching 101 Alumni Band members. The purpose is to keep participants aware of events and information related to the association. We want to include information about events related to SCSU and personal information. It is our goal to have a variety of avenues to release information. Unfortunately, as a result of the rising cost of printing, this information will only be sent out electronically. If you have information to submit to the newsletter, please visit the SCSU Marching 101 Alumni Band webpage to complete the submission form or click below. To be included in the upcoming newsletter, information should be submitted by the 5th day of the following months: January, April, July, and October.

Co-founded in 1988 by the late Ronald J. Sarjeant, the SCSU Alumni Band Association has continued to support and promote a positive working relationship with the University Band program. In the 25 years the spirit and leadership of the members of our organization have been well recognized. We have never been content with following along but have taken the initiative in setting the standard for others.
We still have shirts, water bottles, key chains, and spirit towels. Show your pride and help support the organization.
