In one month, 85 million people will watch them march through the boulevards of Pasadena, Calif. But on a Monday after class, under the lights of the Irish Sports Dome, the members of the Rosemount High School band horn line diligently trace the route of the Rose Parade to the instruction of director Steve Olsen’s loudspeaker.

Congrats to the Rosemount MB, how exciting! Savor every minute, you'll fondly remember this for the rest of your life. (Note to other programs/booster orgs- check out their website, it's dynamic, engaging and up to date! And, there's a place for the community to get involved financially.)

Exciting! My son got to march in the Rose Parade as a member of the Lakeville North Marching Band. It was something we'll never forget. Band is one of the best things our kids could be in. We wish Rosemount the best, and we'll be looking for you in the parade!

Go Irish! George is right- are other programs paying attention? There is no reason that every high school couldn't replicate at least some of Rosemount's success.

Learning about teamwork, collaberation, fundraising and common good are all life skills that these students will use in the future workforce. Best of luck!
