Founded in 2002, the 7th Regiment is a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) organization formed to provide youth a unique & comprehensive educational program in music, marching & performing arts.
With sadness and gratitude in our hearts, the Board of Directors for the 7th Regiment Youth Performing Arts Organization would like to announce the resignation of Tim Rall as the Director of 7th Regiment Drum and Bugle Corps.
Mr. Rall, as he is known by most members, championed the corps through incredible years of growth. He led the corps to an all-time best showing of 5th place among Open Class champions, and earned the honor of being named Outstanding Director of the Year for 2014 by his fellow Open Class directors. Mr. Rall’s growing family commitments and advancing career opportunities prevent him from continuing as Director.
In the interim, Assistant Director Jim O’Neil will serve as Acting Director. The Board of Directors would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Tim for all his years of tireless dedication to the corps, its members, and its staff.
We are all saddened by the loss of a great woman. Ms. Daisy Johnson, affectionately known as “Miss Daisy” to all of her drum corps children, including the grown up ones, passed away last week. There was not a more dedicated, hard working and caring individual in this activity that she loved so dearly. Daisy always made it a point to get to know the corps members and to take care of them. She also was free to share her candid advice to anyone who needed guidance! We love you Daisy! Our hearts go out to her family at this difficult time.
7th Regiment is proud to dedicate their 2016 season in honor of Daisy Johnson, a true legend in the drum corps activity!
