It is with sad heart that The Fort Edward Lions Club has ended Adirondack Drums-The Summer Music Games.
The show On June 29th, 2012 was the final editions of Adirondack Drums.
The Lions have worked very hard for 32 years to bring World Class DCI Drums Corps to Glens Falls but The Lions must call it to and end. Over the passed few year our attendance has dropped to the point that it is very difficult to continue.
The Fort Edward Lions thank all the fans over the 32 years that have supported the Fort Edward Lions Club with this show.
We thank the City of Glens Falls for allowing us East Field for the day of our show and were proud to say we were the longest running show at East Field.
We especially thank all of the area schools that for the past 32 years that have housed these Drum Corps while they were here to perform.
We thank you to all those who contributed to the show progam year after year.
We thank the Fort Edward Fire Dept. for running the concession stand and the Fire Dept. and Fort Edward Rescue Squad for running the 50-50 at the shows.
