In 1948, an enthusiastic group of local families organized a fife and drum corps at the Poquonnock Bridge Fire Department. During these initial years, the fife and drum corps included parents and kids.
In 1964, the fife and drum corps re-organized and became sponsored by the Groton Lodge of Elks as a junior corps for kids (ages 9-18). Membership swelled during the bi-centennial years to nearly 70 kids. We marched proudly from Maine to Florida.
Since the 1980s, membership has fluctuated.
Currently, we have fife openings for this marching season. Now is a great time to join, as we prepare for our 75th Anniversary Celebration throughout 2023. We invite you to be a part of history and celebrate with us!
We need YOU to keep this corps on the road!

We practice Monday nights in Groton, CT.
