“Just over the line into Lexington, and a few rods north, the land rises about fifty feet rather abruptly and with a ledgy face. This little summit commands a grand view up and down the road, for quite a distance, and therefore was an ideal location for the minutemen. Many were there awaiting the passing of the British, and when they were opposite, poured down on them a volley.”

Greetings Fellow Ancient Fife and Drum Corps,
The William Diamond Junior Fife and Drum Corps cordially invites you to the annual Lexington Muster, to be held May 5-6, 2017. Please join us for what will be a fun and exciting musical weekend!
Once again, our Muster will be held at Minute Man National Historical Park in Lexington, MA. Tent and RV camping is available in the main parking area adjacent to the muster field as it was last year. In addition, we will have vendors, jam sessions, and a parade. Provincial and British re-enactors are invited to attend and set up camp, depicting daily life in the 18th Century.
There are several nearby hotels should you decide not to camp.
A brief schedule of events is as follows:
On Friday evening, May 5, there will be a short tattoo at 7:00 p.m. followed by a jam session. Step off for a parade of reasonable duration is Saturday, May 6 at 12:00 noon. The Muster performances will immediately commence, followed by a second jam session. A complementary muster meal will be offered.
We would love to have your corps join us! If you are interested in participating, contact me directly at the number or email shown or return the attached reply card. We must limit participation to the first 30 Corps, so please respond early.
In the Ancient Spirit, and for William Diamond Junior Fife and Drum Corps,
