I used to participate in the Minstrel Show in, I'd say 1959, 1960 or thereabouts. Good memories since that what we have at the end - Chuck Gricus, Sat, 22 Mar 2014 6:53AM
The best years of my life. I started working with the drum line when the corps was in class C and saw them grow and improve and become fine young men and women. I have some CDs of the corps, World Open finishing 2nd and 5the and then through 1975. I would like to hear the Bluereries year. - joe lyons, Mon, 28 Oct 2013 11:15AM

Marched with the Reveries from 1965 through 1967. Loved every minute of it. Most "Revered" memory is sitting on the starting line at Roosevelt Stadium in NJ during the 1966 VFW Nationals. - John "Max" Maxner , Tue, 22 Jan 2013 8:30AM
AS one of only two non-Catholic members I cherish the many wonderful memories of marching with the Reveries - especially when they showed up on our wedding day to perform a concert outside the church - a surprise arranged by the man himself, George Bonfiglio - Ronald K.

Another year gone by, another walk down memory lane.
Steve - Michael and I had so much fun going down memory lane this dreary afternoon. It was great seeing pictures of the old Reveries.

Almost joining the Corp in 1971 after many years in a CYO Band, only to run into "release" problems, my dream of marching in Drum Corp came true in 1974 with the IC Reveries. The Delorey's thankfully, never gave up on me. You all were terrific...it is amazing how real it all still seems. Still in a Drum Corp state of mind! Love the memory lane photo's! - Joey Dalessio, Fri, 22 Dec 2006 5:19PM

I had the time of my life. thanks for the memories it seems like it was just yesterday. row on - cllyde Jordan, Sun, 20 Feb 2005 9:08AM
Mr Reilly was nothing less to me than the Father I never had. His instruction and warmth gave me a safe haven wherein which to grow and experiment. There was never any doubt that he loved all of us and believed in us even though he was a very good disciplinarian and instructor, who maintained a standard of excellence. I can not imagine what my life would have been like without his gentleness and sense of humor. I thank God for role models such as Mr and Mrs. Reilly who have dedicated their time and attention to so many young people over the years. His memory will continue to inspire me to give all of who I am in the same unselfish manner. Grace and peace for all those he leaves behind. Cynthia - Cyndi (Anderson) Samuel, Fri, 31 Dec 2004 2:35PM
Arthur Reilly gave me my start in instructing...I will forever be greatful to all the help he gave me...He was always my friend....My prayers are with this wonderful family... - Donn Ebert, Thu, 30 Dec 2004 2:51AM

We had a drawing and Sharkey won. Slushy still has the invitation and a large full color certificate naming him as a crew member for that specific cruise. Even today, being aboard during a turnaround cruise is a special honor.
