On the 12th day of Saranac Lake-mas, Historic Saranac Lake gave to you … the uniform of the Saranac Lake Pioneers Drum and Bugle Corps! This handsome fringed jacket comes with a matching pair of fringed trousers. In 1959, a letter to the editor of the Adirondack Daily Enterprise thanked the community for its support to purchase these uniforms. They would have been worn with a tan felt cap, too. Does anyone have any photographs of the corps? We’ve love to see this uniform in action.

Thanks to everyone for following along on our Twelve Days of Saranac Lake-mas! We’ve had a ton of fun sharing these snippets from our history with you. Be sure to follow along online all year long to learn more about Saranac Lake history and the goings-on here at Historic Saranac Lake and the Saranac Laboratory Museum.
