Mark your calendars! A golden anniversary celebration unlike any other is now being planned to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Largo Band of Gold. A reunion for all members, staff and friends of the Largo High School instrumental music program under former Band of Gold Director Robert R. Cotter will be held during the weekend of July 13, 2018. As part of the anniversary celebration, the Largo Library will be staging a month-long exhibit to commemorate the history of the Band of Gold. New items have been added to our collection of memorabilia since our last reunion, so the exhibit will be a must see for all Band of Gold members and fans. Even though the reunion is still over two years away, there are many other events to plan in order to hold a memorable event. Lisa (Mattei) Fontaine is heading up our reunion committee, and could use your help. If you would like to assist in planning this very special reunion, please contact Lisa at If you have any Band of Gold memorabilia that you would like to donate or lend, please contact us at Please note that we are especially interested in old audio and video recordings.
