On Thursday November 28th, Pioneer will particpate in the Chicago Thanksgiving Parade. As one of the nation’s largest and most popular Thanksgiving Day parades, the corps will perform in front of half a million spectators that line the parade route. In addition, the parade is also broadcast nationwide and streamed worldwide to millions of viewers by WGN America.
Participation in the parade will be open to Pioneer alumni, staff, volunteers, as well as supporters of the organization. Persons interested in participating in the parade can review the schedule of events, and complete the Parade Application by clicking on the button below.
YOU ARE INVITED!
You are most welcome to join us in celebration of our 2019 Pioneer Percussion Performance Corps Ensemble’s membership this Sunday afternoon at 2:00 pm.
Let’s all meet at Pioneerland (2000 E. Birchwood Ave. Cudahy, WI 53110). This was originally scheduled for September 29th, but due to football and band required commitments that our members had for that date, our banquet has been rescheduled for this Sunday.
Yes, we realize that gives you short notice, but if you have the time, a surge of Pioneer Pride, and $20.00 for a lunch/supper, come to Pioneerland. We will start with a tour of our ever-growing facility, a buffet feast by Irene’s Catering (Chicken & Polish Sausage) as well as well-deserved awards to our hard-working membership. They will also receive their shamrock medals. We will have a guest speaker, a slide presentation, and a very enjoyable afternoon for all. (Sorry, no bonfire!)
BINGO, OF COURSE, THIS SATURDAY!
It takes place beginning at 6:30 pm at The Senior Center on 45th & Forest Home Ave. The Progressive Game has a $2,400.00 prize at 57 numbers or less for a Full Card!
Please continue using www.smile.amazon.com We already have received a nice check from them and when you purchase any Amazon product on this website, you continue to help Pioneer to be the best it can be!
Better Every Day!
From the end of July through today have been busy for the Pioneer in many ways. It has been unusually different from past summers. However, our purpose of serving youth and adults involved in corps life is almost at a maximum level.
South Milwaukee Heritage Days Parade
The Pioneer Percussion ensemble, along with several alumni, marched in South Milwaukee’s annual Heritage Parade on Saturday, July 27th. It was not a long parade, and took place just minutes away from Pioneerland. After the parade, Shari Drake prepared a spaghetti dinner for all. It made for a comfortable day. Senior members Bob Grotz and Chris Smith played. Alumni Bill Nylund (#159), John Schoenknecht (#444), and Kurt Mueller (#1004) were also joined by Don Schofield (Gilligan), Shari Drake, and Roman Blenski.
In conjunction with DCI Championship week, the annual DrumLine Battle competition took place in Indianapolis on Saturday, August 10th. The Pioneer Percussion Ensemble performed three times as part of the festivities. They were also joined by several color guard members, as shown in the picture below. While the the older-aged corps lines beat them in the competition, they looked great! The bright green T-shirts donated by John Schoenknecht (#444) made no doubt that the ensemble was Pioneer. After the performances, all of the members had tickets to watch the DCI Finals. It was a hot day in Indianapolis, but the members enjoyed nice cool A.C. supplied by Bus #68. It worked great throughout the entire day!
