New for 2013 is the George N. Parks calendar. Assembled by former UMMB drum majors Linda Hannum (1980 - 1982, and a member of the UMMB Hall of Fame) and Jeff Poulton (1982 - 1987), this special calendar features a different picture of Prof. Parks for each month, along with his famed "Starred Thoughts." The calendar is priced at $15, with proceeds from each sale going to the George N. Parks Memorial Drum Major Scholarship, to be awarded to a drum major of the Minuteman Marching Band.
