Oktobercorps (2018)

Oktobercorps is a one-event drum corps that has been created for 2018, the 50th anniversary of Kitchener-Waterloo's Oktoberfest. Corps members come from a variety of drum corps. There will be 3 sections: a marching unit, a Stage Band float and a Pit Percussion float. Members of the Optimists Alumni will be in both the marching contingent and the Stage Band. These photos were taken at the Oktobercorps rehearsals on May 12, September 9, October 6. Of course, photos will also be taken on parade day, October 8, 2018.

Performance with Haeyneo (2018)

In 2017 we performed with the Haeyneo (women divers from Jeju Island in South Korea). In 2018 they were invited to Canada for the 50th annual Oktoberfest Parade in Kitchener-Waterloo. The Optimists Alumni organized a banquet for the Haenyeo for Sunday, October 7 (the day before the parade). Before the banquet guests were entertained by the Haeyneo, Northstar and the Optimists Alumni. This was followed by a special feature that included the Haenyeo, Northstar and the Optimists Alumni.
