Alumni Invited to Perform with Dover Marching Tornadoes

The Dover Marching Tornadoes are celebrating their 100th year of outstanding halftime entertainment. Organized in 1917 by Lawrence H. Alexander, the band rehearsed in the basement of the school and performed at parades and events. In a short time, the band became a vital part of student life at Dover High School.

Many musicians have come through the band since that time, and all are invited to perform halftime at the Dover football game on Friday, September 15th and at the Dover Marching Band Preview on Saturday, September 16th. Details, schedules, activities, and registration information can be found on the Dover High School Band Alumni Facebook page or by clicking here.

Hard copies of the registration forms may be picked up at rehearsals:
Tuesday August 1st and Sunday, August 6th - Middle School Band Room from 6:30-8:30pm
Tuesday August 8th, 15th, 22nd – Crater Stadium Practice Field from 6:30-9:00pm

Music is also on the webpage and can be downloaded and printed. And don’t worry if you can’t make all the practices because everyone is welcome to participate.

So find that old band instrument in the back of your closet, dust it off, and prepare to continue the outstanding traditions that have become the Dover Marching Tornadoes!

Tribe Grand Slam Could Lead to $500 Cash

Congratulations to Miles Riley, Iva Burkey, and Brittany Baumgardner who are all in the running to win $500 cash as semi-finalists in the WJER Grand Slam contest! Miles was our Grand Slam contestant for the April 5th Cleveland Indians game, during which Francisco Lindor hit the first grand slam of the season. Then on April 14th, Lonnie Chisenhall put Iva in the running with his grand slam. And on July 25th, Brittany Baumgardner became a semi-finalist when both Bradley Zimmer and Edwin Encarnacion each hit a grand slam. Miles, Iva, and Brittany will be three of 20 semi-finalists in our final drawing for the $500 cash from First Federal Community Bank, along with prizes from Parkway Nissan, at the end of the regular season.

If you would like to be a semi-finalist, be sure to register for the Grand Slam contest at any First Federal Community Bank location, Parkway Nissan, or right here at WJER Radio. And remember, every Grand Slam contestant automatically wins four fruit smoothies from our area Lewis family McDonald's!

Indians Baseball on WJER FM

Baseball season is always exciting, but this year there's even more to celebrate, as WJER returned Indians baseball to the FM airwaves. With the addition of 100.9 WJER FM in February, we now simulcast all of our programming on both AM 1450 and the new FM station.
