Help Establish a National Marching Arts Day

Hi everyone,

We wanted to draw your attention to something that we think is pretty special.? There is currently an on-line petition seeking to establish a day in which to honor the marching arts.? The petition requests the declaration of March 4th as National Marching Arts Day.? This would be a day to reflect on the amazing things that all types of marching arts organizations (drum and bugle corps, marching bands, color guards, military bands, etc.) bring to people who participate in the activities, as well as the impact that these organizations have on communities throughout the nation.? The emphasis is on the positive effect that these groups have on young people and how the skills learned through participation in the marching arts carry over into so many other aspects of their future lives.

The petition is seeking 100,000 signatures by April 2, 2013.? Please check out the website ( and consider adding your name to the petition!
