Light, Rosemary

Everyone in the Westshoremen knew Rose Light: she was responsible for handling, measuring and fitting every item of the corps uniform, including pants, top, shako, plume and gauntlets. In addition, she coordinated all the corps support activities. She helped initiate bingo games in support of the organization, and volunteered to work at games every Monday night throughout the year. She also handled all travel arrangements for overnight trips. In 1983, after 21 years of service, she retired from drum corps activity to become secretary of Five Star Brass Productions. As a founding member of Five Star Brass, dedicated to preserving drum and bugle corps activity in central Pennsylvania, she was instrumental in the success of the company.
