The Moose Majorettes

In the 1950s and 1960s the Moose Majorettes marched in many parades in the Sandusky area. In September, 1951, the Moose Majorettes had a mass twirling exhibition at the Jackson Junior School in celebration of the Sandusky Moose Lodge’s fortieth anniversary. The Moose Majorettes appeared at Cedar Point, Camp Perry, and at a Soap Box Derby held in Sandusky in the summer of 1952. During a competition held at the Wisconsin Spectacle of Music, July 24-25, 1963, the Moose Majorettes and Drum Corps earned first place.

There were many other marching groups in Sandusky throughout the years, including the Lake Erie Drum and Bugle Corps and the Eaglettes. If anyone would like to donate pictures from former local majorette or drum corps organizations, please contact the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center.
