Cadets Cancel Day in Buffalo Due to Weather Concerns

Cadets Cancel Day in Buffalo Due to Weather Concerns

After back and forth discussions, George Hopkins, director of the Cadets and CEO of Youth Education in the Arts, has asked Jack Gaylord, Jr, President of Drums Along the Waterfront, to cancel the clinic and rehearsal scheduled for Thursday, June 27th at Erie Community College and Ralph Wilson Stadium.

According to Hopkins, “The forecast is for rain from 10 am – 10 pm; close to three inches of rain is expected. We will be unable to do much of anything, clinic students will not have much of an experience, and the trade off here for this free event – the use of the stadium by the Cadets, looks improbable due severe weather.
