Citrus Bowl 2012
The Villages Twirlers were in Orlando Florida this December, where they marched in the Florida Citrus Bowl Parade for the 3rd straight year!!!
We believe that they were the first senior team to perform at this event.
They marched off in style, proudly representing The Villages and showing what a great marching team they are!
Team captain Ann said "I just love our team! From our newest members to our oldest, we all give 100%. We love doing parades and I am proud of all of our members!"
Aged 55 to 89, they showed just what the Villages is all about! Living a full lifestyle after retirement!
As reported in the Orlando Sentinel,
The Twirlers showed up in strength, with over 50 team members representing the Show Team, Parade Corps, Flag Corps and Drum Corps!
"Saturday's parade featured more than 45 entries, including old-fashioned automobiles from the Model A's of Greater Orlando club, a group of baton-spinning retirees known as the Villages Twirlers and the Budweiser Clydesdales."
As reported on one family's blog
about last years parade, but we just had to include it.

Drum corp of old men, and old women doing the flags and baton twirling! "
