Hopefully, you’re all already planning on attending send-off for the team at Redskins Park Saturday morning from 10:00 to noon. There’ll be party deck tickets given away for the best dressed fans and best decorated Redskins car, a chance to cheer on the team buses as they head off to the hotel, and spend even more of Dallas Weekend with a bunch of other Redskins fans.
It’ll also be an opportunity to honor some of the longest-tenured members of the Washington Redskins Marching Band, more than 25 people who have put in 20 or more years of service, including a few that have put in more than FIFTY years of service. Each of these veteran musicians will be honored and given a customized ring (like the one pictured above) featuring their name and the length of their tenure in the band.
The Redskins Marching Band, formed in 1937, is one of two remaining pro football marching bands today. They’ll be an integral part of the pregame festivities on Sunday, so honoring them on Saturday is a perfect way to start the weekend.
