Week of August 27, 2017

What an amazing performance! The FCMB made us all proud at the Massillon game and followed it up with a stellar parade performance less than 12 hours later! The weather was perfect for a first game and first parade. Congrats to the FCMB on their 1st place win for School Spirit in the Cityfest Parade! #marchproud
