Hi Nanci,
My name is Terry (Fitzgerald) Colameta. I'm from Everett, Massachusetts and have been involved in Drum Corps/Colorguard just about all my life. I just had to comment on your site, I've enjoyed going down memory lane with you. What a tribute to your mom, who is your inspiration to do this.

I found your site by chance, on March 14th.....I was looking for anything from the DrumCorps/Colorguard world, as lately it seems so many are posting pictures from so many years ago on facebook, and the internet. I started with your latest posting which was March 14th. The first article that came up almost knocked me off my chair. It was the article about the family that lost their mother and they were asking for donations to help the family. Well that was my mother that had passed away, and the article was about my ironic that the day you posted it, was the day that I found your site, and I saw this article. I have since looked at all of your postings and enjoyed them immensely...........thank you!
I also showed my DAD, who is still alive (88 years old) and all my sisters, as the article said there are 5 of us. And it brought tears to their eyes to read it. That happened to us 45 years ago, we were just children, and to see it in print now, was incredible.
My family continued to stay in Drum Corps/Colorguard. My sisters were in the Boston Crusaders Drum Corp, I was in St. Anthony's Imperials, Everett, MA, and my youngest sister marched in 27th Lancers, Revere, MA, and Erte Colorguard .......My brother-in-law taught the drum line for 27th, and is in the Drum Corps Hall of Fame.

Drum Corps/Colorguard was one of the best things to happen to our family, and we continue to cherish all the memories over the years.
Thank you for providing this glimpse into the past. It is truly appreciated.

Sincerely and with Many Thanks,
Terry Colameta
