Attention Former Apache Band Members — We need your support!

This is your source of information for all things Apache Band GOLD. We want to reconnect you with the past and the time that each of you spent as a member of the Apache Band. Welcome, explore the links and study the pictures because this site is all about YOU - the alumni of the Tyler Junior College.

Many of you look back on your time at TJC as some of the best years of your life. Now is the time to give back for all that TJC and the Apache Band have done for you. Please consider joining the Alumni Association and the Apache Band GOLD at this time. For more information or questions, please contact Apache Band Director Tom Mensch at tommensch@embarqmail.com

If you have not already done so, we need you to join the TJC Alumni Association / Apache Band Gold Annual Membership (which must be renewed each year). Dues are $25 of which $10 goes to the Apache Band Gold or you can purchase a Lifetime Membership for $200 and $50 goes to the Apache Band and your lifetime membership in Apache Band Gold.

We strongly encourage you to do a Lifetime membership.  For $200 you have a lifelong connection to your College and Band. You have the convenience of not having to remember your dues year after year combined with the overall savings — it is the clear choice.

As an Alumni member, you will receive many additional benefits including:

  • Band Gold Lifetime members will receive a special band t-shirt!
  • Lapel pin
  • Decal sticker
  • Alumni Association Member certificate for framing
  • The Apache magazine full of college news, features, campus events, and class notes
  • The Pow Wow Preview newsletter (5 times a year) with the latest TJC news and events
  • Free admission to all home athletic games and theatre and music productions
  • 10% discount at the Campus Bookstore on everything, including textbooks
  • Alumni member's dependents are eligible for alumni scholarships
  • Free admission to Alumni Awards Homecoming banquet and tailgate party

Joining is easy. Click here for more information (or click the Join Today link to the left). Be sure that you direct your "gift" portion to the Apache Band for your membership dues. You will receive your membership card from the office of Alumni Relations in the mail. By doing this, you will be a member of two alumni organizations (TJC Alumni Association and the Apache Band GOLD) that both work together to keep their members informed and updated about all that is going on at TJC and with the Band.
