Crossroads of America Scout Band - 100th anniversary concert at Belzer
by Alan Hague
posted: Feb. 17, 2017

The 100th Birthday Concert for the Crossroads of America Scout Band was held at Camp Belzer on February 12. My connection to the band is from growing up across the street from the Lobraico's. Multiple generations of the Lobraico family played in it. My father remembers Mike Lobraico, who started Lobraico's Rexall Drugs that opened at the corner of Guilford and Westfield in 1925 (now Runners Forum and The Red Room), practicing his trumpet on the porch of his 61st and Carrollton house. Mike's son Joe and grandson Joey both also played in the band. Mike's granddaughter Mary tells me that boys from the band would play carols in the Broad Ripple drug store at Christmas.
The back of the program from the 100th anniversary concert lists the many activities coming during the 100th Anniversary Celebration Week at Camp Belzer - July 2 - July 8, including community parades, vintage campsite, Scout Band museum, Merit Badge work and the finale 100th Anniversary Concert.
