Cloverleaf High School invites residents to help send students to the state marching band competition Saturday in Brunswick.

The Cloverleaf Marching Band has qualified for the state finals for 32 years in a row.

This year’s show is based on the musical “Fiddler on the Roof” and opens with an electric violin solo by senior Sarah Icardi.

Family, friends, students and others are welcome to a pep rally and free cookout.

For $3 per person, students and Cloverleaf staff chaperones can ride a bus to Brunswick to cheer on the Marching Colts and can commemorate Cloverleaf’s history of excellence by purchasing a commemorative T-shirt.
