CORPS Photos

The Northernaires is now an alumni marching and maneuvering corps, formed in 1953 and based in Menominee, Michigan. It was based on the D.A.R. Boys Club which had become the junior corps Northernaires.

The senior Northernaires performed in their first competition in 1956. Although the corps did not travel extensively as a junior corps, the senior Northernaires ran the table in the state of Michigan in the 1960s, holding every major title at one time or another. They took the state VFW championships three years in a row - twice.

The Northernaires became coed in 1970 and won for the last time on July 4, 1973, disbanding shortly thereafter.

In the late 1990s, an alumni group got together to play and reminisce at Menominee's annual Waterfront Festival.
