Olympia Charter Members Our Director, Vic Jowders Sylvester Park 2004

Our Olympia New Horizons Band started out in 1999 with 13 members showing up on the first day. Now, in our 2014-2015 season, we have over 70! (There are still half of the original members with us. Isn't that awesome?!)

In the fall of 2014, the Olympia and Tacoma New Horizons bands merged into one group with the new name of: South Puget Sound New Horizons Band. This larger group continues to follow the Olympia schedule, meeting on Wednesday mornings at Land Yacht Harbor.

We are always looking for new members, so if you're interested in joining us, or have any corrections to the information on this page, please contact us. Just type the e-mail address from the rainbow record image at the bottom of the page into the "TO" line of your e-mail, and put "Membership Information" in the "SUBJECT" line. Thank you.
