The Mount Greylock Regional School band will march this Memorial Day weekend in new matching polos provided by the MGRS Friends of the Arts. The public is encouraged to catch any of their three upcoming performances:
• Sunday, May 28, on Main Street in Hancock, MA, at 11:00 a.m.;
• Sunday, May 28, on North Main Street in Lanesborough, MA, at 2:00 p.m.; and
• Monday, May 29, on Spring Street in Williamstown, MA, at 11:00 a.m.
The Mount Greylock Marching Mounties will be sporting brand new matching black polos this year as they march in honor of those who died while serving in the U.S. military. A gift from the MGRS Friends of the Arts, the new shirts mark a return to MGRS tradition, where the matching shirts or uniforms were in use for many years before the pandemic. In fact, every band, orchestra and chorus student at MGRS, in middle and high school, will be issued a polo to wear during performances, including orchestra and chorus.
“We’re very thankful that students have something that’s comfortable and looks nice for all performances. It helps identify us as a community,” says band director Jacqueline Vinette.
Memorial Day parades in Hancock, Lanesborough and Williamstown are free to the public.
