A Special Thank You
Our new and improved website was made possible through the dedication and efforts of the St. John’s Alumni Committee, but especially because of the technical knowledge and expertise of Brian Menard.
As a former member of Cardinals of Precious Blood (1972-1978), Oakland Crusaders (1979) and Santa Clara Vanguard (1980-1982) and husband of our very own alum Yvette Byrne-Menard, Brian has a unique understanding of the drum corps community and a deep appreciation for other former members who wish to stay connected with their specific Drum Corps families.
Brian’s Drum Corps experience, combined with his extensive knowledge of the intricacies of web design, has resulted in his creation of this interactive website for our alumni members to enjoy with each other, and to share with other members of the Drum Corps community.
The Alumni Committee cannot adequately express our gratitude to Brian for his understanding, guidance, patience and, most importantly, the countless hours of hard work he has put in to this project. Brian's involvement has enabled the Committee to bring our ideas for the new website together and to build on much of the work that had been done for our original website.
Thank you, Brian!
