Exploring Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad

Remembering the Rescue-ettes

Share This Post

In the 1960’s and 1970’s, the Sterling Rescue Rescue-ettes were baton twirlers and a drum and bugle corps that participated in parade and traveled to other cities and states to participate in competitions.

Since it’s inception in 1964, Sterling Rescue has been a proud member of the Sterling community. In the 1960’s and 1970’s, Sterling Rescue was a major participant in community events and local parades.  Activities for youth in the area were limited. Sterling Rescue formed and trained teams of young baton twirlers and a drum and bugle corps, sporting the green and white colors of SVRS in professional uniforms. For a decade, the Rescue-ettes provided a great after-school activity for the youth of Sterling.

We are interested in developing a history of the Rescue-ettes to post on this web site. If you were involved with the Rescue-ettes and would like to provide information or photos for the history, please email us at [email protected]
