Alumna creates Etsy art shop for band uniform fundraiser


Band alumna Cait (Merrigan) Harrison ’06 is lending her artistic talents to create very special and unique keepsakes for alumni and fans of the UMass Minuteman Marching Band.

A stylized illustration of a UMass Bando is featured in a matted frame, including space for a photo. Currently representing all sections of the band (including band, drum major, Colonial Honor Guard, colorguard, twirler, and pit), the illustrations can be customized to include any instrument. The image can also be personalized with an alum’s name and years marched.

These frames are available with either the 1993-2000 (black sash) or the 2001-2017 uniform. Cait plans to expand the line with the ’81-’93 (white sash) and, of course, the soon-to-be-revealed uniform design for 2018.

$10 of each purchase will be donated to the Minuteman Band Uniform Fund.
