RHS Big Blue Band

The third Rockdale Big Blue Band reunion will be held Saturday, June 22, at Apache Pass Ice House, according to reunion director and former RHS band director Jim Perry.

“We will officially start at 4 p.m. but if we can find a large enough venue, it would be great to meet earlier for lunch and talk. The Classes of 1983, 1988 and 1993 will hold their reunions at the same place and time as well, so it will be a large gathering,” Perry said. “Bill Grusendorf and Don Thoede (also former band directors) will be there and we want to see everyone, so please put this on your calendar.”
