Chapparells is a youth organization for baton twirling, percussion instrument playing, and marching. Young children learn a lot while in the corps, and have a lot of fun along the way.

Hey everyone! My daughter Emma is a flag member and a couple weeks ago I bought her a blue fidget spinner, its a toy meant to help with symptoms of ADHD and anxiety. Well she had it with her in her purse at practice (last she remembers) on Monday April 24th. We have searched at home, in our cars, and at the hall so now we are reaching out to our Chaps family, if anyone sees it please let us know. I will post a pic if what it looks like in the comments. Thank you all!!
