KIDA Mourns the Passing of Chuck Saia

It is with great sadness that we have lost a member of our KIDA family, Mr. Chuck Saia. Due to his health in recent years he had retired from his duties with KIDA, but if you have been around our association in the past, you have seen his friendly face walking the sidelines of the gym as a chief judge and keeping his eye on the front line boundary with his T&P duties. Chuck not only made many contributions to KIDA, but to the overall marching music activity in our area with the Westshoremen Drum & Bugle Corps, Five Star Brass, DCA, Cavalcade of Bands, and TOB to name a few. Since 2009 our annual Sportsmanship Award has bared his name.

Chuck has made many close friends here in KIDA and we all have many fond memories of our time with him. We send our condolences to his family during this sad time; Chuck was generous & honorable man and will be truly missed
