BELLVILLE — Youngsters interested in joining the Marching Princesses Baton Group are invited to register April 26 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Bellville New Life Church.
The group performs at area events such as the Mansfield Miss Ohio Parade, Bellville July 4 parade and the Lexington Blueberry Festival Parade. They also perform at the Bellville Fair and one Clear Fork football game halftime show.
The registration April 26 is where participants sign up and pay fees.
The Princesses are divided into five class levels: pre-school (ages three to five), beginners, tricks, intermediate and advanced.
At registration night information will be given out on uniforms and summer events’ dates and times. If needed, measurements will be taken for purchase of batons.
The group will be keeping the same uniforms as last year.
The first lesson of the season will be May 23.
The group is led by Terry Shupe, who has done this job for 31 years. The group will practice at Bellville Elementary School. If there is bad weather it will be at New Life Church of Christ every Tuesday from the end of May through September. Girls will learn balance and coordination skills for parade and show routines.
People wishing more information may call 419-886-3849.
