Dear fellow alumnus,
We hope this message finds you well. We are reaching out to you with a shared vision of making a positive impact on the Madison Scouts in 2024 and beyond, and we believe your financial support for the C.H. Beebe Scholarship Fund can help turn this vision into reality.

The Madison Scouts Alumni Association (MSAA) is on a mission to raise scholarship funds and establish a new level of tuition support for members of the Madison Scouts. With your generous contribution, we can empower young musicians pursuing their passion to participate in a transformative experience with the Madison Scouts. Every dollar you donate will help fund prospective members and eliminate, or substantially reduce, the financial barrier for some to become a marching member of the Madison Scouts this year.

Here are a few ways you can financially support the C.H. Beebe Scholarship Fund:

2024 is shaping up to be an exciting year! We have lots in store and would love your participation in helping us grow our great organization!

The 2024 Hall of Fame inductees will be announced in mid-April. We have been blessed with so many exceptional candidates to choose from. The HOF committee is evaluating and selecting the inductees for this year’s class.

Don’t miss out! On April 27, Rockin' for a Cure will feature the Madison Scouts All-Star Band and Percussion Ensemble. Also, the day after, plan to check out the Madison Scouts camp on April 28 at Milton High School from 10—noon. Purchase your Rockin' for a Cure tickets in advance. If you're looking for a place to stay, call DoubleTree by Hilton Madison East at 608-244-4703 before April 7th to get a group rate of $109. Mention “Rockin4ALS” or Group Code: RFA to get the special rate.

The response to our initial survey has been encouraging enough for us to move forward with a second survey. More than 400 alumni sent us their survey expressing a 'yes' or 'maybe' response. Anyone can fill out this second survey, even if you did not fill out the initial survey. The results of this second survey will determine if we, in fact, participate in the Rose Parade in 2026. Regarding everyone’s big question about the cost for each participant, the more participants there are, the lower the price per person will be. That also means that the fewer participants, the more cost per person will be.

Madison 2024 HOFThe MSAA Madison Scouts Hall of Fame Committee is preparing to reach a consensus on inductees for the 2024 Class of the Madison Scouts Hall of Fame. Each nominee submitted for discernment comes from the 85+ year history of servant leaders and legends of the Madison Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps. The tough part is sifting through so many worthy candidates and the blessing is knowing that each will likely be honored in time.

MSAA intends to honor members of the 2024 Madison Scouts Hall of Fame by campaigning for contributions to the C.H. Beebe Scholarship Fund, which is a direct and tangible way to support current marching members of the Madison Scouts. Stay tuned for your opportunity to get some cool Madison Scout swag.

The MSAA Hall of Fame Committee will conclude consensus discussions in early March and a formal announcement of the 2024 Class of the Madison Scout Hall of Fame will be made in mid-April 2024.
