Bringing the family together

by Drum Corps International

David Speer sent in this one. "Sebastian (far left) was marching his third year on baritone at Colts, and Aaron (corps nickname: Pilates -- don't ask -- third from left) was marching his second with the Colts baritone line. Our oldest, Brendan, (second from left), lives in the Rogers Park area of Chicago with his wife, Jen. And Clark (far right) had just finished his fourth year at Western Illinois University. Mom, dad, Brendan, Jen and Clark had just sat in the rain to watch the Colts march in an Independence Day parade in a Chicago suburb. Then we all met up at the Colts' housing site for a holiday get-together. With everyone in a different city (Sebastian attends Truman State in Kirksville, Mo., and we live in West Des Moines, Iowa, where Aaron attends high school), it's rare anymore when all four brothers can be in one place at the same time. But drum corps brings us all together." Thanks David! E-mail your best shots from the summer to dave@dci.org along with where and when the photo was taken. Send some biographical information about yourself as well. We'll give you full credit. Also, let us know if you want your e-mail address included. View the Forzato archives
