Dulaney High School Lion's Roar Marching Band had a busy day on Oct. 20, beginning with a 7:45 a.m. start at the school.
After getting into uniform, the band went directly to Oregon Ridge Park to participate at Save-A-Limb, a run, walk and bike riding event.
Sponsored by LifeBridge's Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics, the event raises awareness and money to assist patients who cannot afford physical therapy. It also helps with housing during lengthy treatments, transportation or adaptive equipment such as wheelchairs.
This was the second year that the marching band joined the effort. In 2011, then-superintendent of Baltimore County Public Schools, Dr. Joe Hairston, invited Lion's Roar to participate in this event.
This year, new Superintendent S. Dallas Dance enjoyed Dulaney's performance before the start of the bike ride.
After the bikers took off, the band led a one-mile parade down Beaver Dam Road. They were followed by children and adults who had undergone limb replacement surgery.
When the band's Save-A-Limb duties were over, the band returned to the high school for the last home football game of the season, against visiting Dundalk.
After the game, varsity football team members thanked band members for their support throughout the 2012 season.
The Lion's Roar responded by playing — what else? — the Dulaney fight song.
This past weekend, Oct. 27, Dulaney's Marching Band participated in the Alsatia Mummers' Parade, a 2.5-mile nighttime parade in Hagerstown.
This parade is a Hagerstown tradition, and is attended by thousands of people.
Mark your calendars for the Great Finds Bazaar, to be held at the Timonium United Methodist Church, 2300 Pot Spring Road, on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The bazaar will feature 30 vendors with unique gift ideas, flea market treasures, freshly made pecan buns, cookies, cake, pies and candy.
Lunch with homemade soup and sandwiches will also be available.
