The Pre-Cadets

The Pre-Cadet program was created in an effort to fill the ranks of both the Cadets and the Dutch Boy Drum Corps with new, young talent. Members ranged from pre-schoolers to age 8. To keep the youth engaged, games and activities were intermingled with the introduction to intstruments and marching. The Pre-Cadet program ran for a number of years through the 1980's and 90's. Many of the older members of Dutch Boy worked as instuctors. The photos included here on this page were taken from 1991 to 1993.
