Fellow Alums,

The UNL BAA board made the decision that we should cancel our reunion plans for the fall of 2020. With so much of this college football and marching band season up in the air, we believe that the best course of action is to postpone until 2021. This decision is being made for the safety of our fellow alums as well as the recognition that plans for social distancing may make it hard for both Westbrook and Memorial stadium to accommodate our group at the present time. If perchance the football season is moved to Spring of 2021, we will explore our opportunity to reschedule to a game in that time frame. Otherwise, we hope to be with you again in the Fall of 2021.  

Please remember that the BAA is a membership organization, and we will still be running a membership campaign in late summer or early fall.  Dues and donations collected during that campaign will be used for our expanded scholarship program for current Cornhusker Marching Band members. If the Cornhusker Marching Band is able to participate in the football season, they may have additional needs for our support which your donations will also help us fund.

Please stay safe, and we will look forward to gathering together in 2021. 

Go Big Red!

Steve Pearson
President, Band Alumni Association, Inc.

Sorry to receive the news, but it’s the right move. I had been looking forward to celebrating my 60th anniversary of marching with THE BAND, but no way I could have attended once Covid 19 was in full sway. On to 2021! Steve Halter (1960 – 1966)

I always look forward to “tooting my own horn” (trombone) at our Alumni Band Day, a highlight of my year. BUT………Thank You for canceling amidst the viral invasion, esp for us older tooters. Wise Decision. Larry Moeller, 1967-70, one of “Jack’s Boys”
