Centennial Memory #83: Crusade Band Playing at MSG

To celebrate the DeMolay Centennial, PA DeMolay will be counting down 100 memories worth celebrating that took place within the DeMolay Chapters and Jurisdiction of Pennsylvania.

As mentioned in a previous post, some Chapters had the ability to create their own bands. We showed pictures of Pilgrim Chapter's Band from several years ago, but a few other Chapters had their own Marching Bands as well. One of those Chapters is Crusade Chapter.

Crusade Chapter called their band "The Crusade Patrol," and they were invited to play at Madison Square Garden as part of the Scranton night celebration. The article is from the February 1935 issue of the Keystone Crusader.

Until next time - "Dad" Joe Pullin
