    It is with heavy hearts that we report that fellow musician Millard Hill, aged 89, passed away Tuesday, September 24, 2013. Millard played baritone in the WVU Band and Alumni Band. He and his wife Betty traveled on many of the Alumni Band trips overseas, performing for audiences in over a dozen countries. He always had a beautiful smile and wonderful sense of humor to share. He was a true Mountaineer and friend. He will be greatly missed by his WVU Band family.

    Services for Millard will be held September 28, 2013 at 11am at the Indian River City United Methodist Church, Titusville, FL 32780. Please send condolences for Betty and the family to the following address:

    Injecting yourself into a new organization can be challenging. When you're part of the Pride of West Virginia, the tradition continues on after graduation and so here are some helpful tips to get yourself quickly registered and part of the WVU Alumni Band.

    Become an Official Member and Register for Homecoming
    • New members must be pre-verified before being permitted to register for Homecoming Weekend.
    • After you request membership and are being verified, it may take up-to five business days to confirm your eligibility; this is done so as to ensure everyone who participates with the WVU Alumni Band has earned that privilege.
    • Register for Homecoming before September 23 to ensure the best chance to participate.
    • First time, newly graduated four-year seniors are eligible to have their dues waived for the first year following graduation. This works by extending new members who attend Homecoming a refund of $17 annual dues, with a rebate check being provided at the event. So, if you just graduated, be sure to note that on your Homecoming registration form.
    • The first 20 newly graduated four-year seniors
      registering for Homecoming will be refunded your member game ticket costs, with a check being provided at Saturday morning Homecoming check-in. This is possible by a WVU Alumni Band Grant Program.
    After You've Registered for the Event,
    Stay in Touch for Updates through Homecoming

    The WVU Alumni Tour Band is going to the British Isles on July 13-28, 2014. The tour is being very enthusiastically responded to, and we are limited by air travel and accommodations to the number of folks we can take.  Obviously tour "veterans" have earned a slight advantage, and probably Alumni over non WVU folks; and players over "just sightseers".  Extended family will be accepted where possible.  Tour price is approximately $4000 per person. Please contact Anita Lawson through her e mail if interested: Anita.Lawson@mail.wvu.edu.
