CORPS Photos

The Grenadiers of Broome County were known as the Southern Tier Grenadiers in 1972 when, as an A-60 corps, they beat out nearly every other world-class corps in brass excellence (scoring 4.8 out of 5) at the U.S. Open Prelims in Marion, Ohio.

The Grenadiers formed in 1959 and were known as the Apalachin Grenadiers and were sponsored by the local fire department and American Legion. In the mid-70's, the name was changed to the Southern Tier Grenadiers. They folded around 1978.

The Corps was very strong for their size and won numerous awards in bugling and drums. They also fielded a Winter Color Guard which did very well.
