Alumni Association :: The Bloodline
Junior Dukes | Legionaires | Colt .45 | Colts

The Bloodline represents how each of us fits into this rich history of the Colts. It is our family tree. Since 1963, young people from ages 12 to 21, from Dubuque to Great Britain, to Japan and beyond, learned how "we use music and excellence to teach each other about success in life." We may have experienced the Colts, the Junior Dukes, or the Legionaires in different ways. But we all have helped lay the foundation on which the next 50 years will continue to build.

Throughout our 50th Anniversary in 2013, we reconnected with many alumni and parents, and we look to connect with many more in the future. And we hope to reconnect the members with each other as well. Please review the Colts Alumni listing on our website to see if you’re listed (CLICK HERE). While there, check to see if your best friends are listed and help us find any missing members from our past. Do we have your e-mail address and current home address? Thank you for your continued support!
