Neka Ton helps Tiffany Chin with her headdress while traveling with the Seattle Chinese Community Girls Drill Team, June 29, 2013. The drill team- comprised of girls from the fifth to 12th grades- celebrated its 60th anniversary last year. The team showcases precision, military-style marching led by a captain's commands. They wear replica Chinese opera costumes in red, signifying good luck. The team practices on Saturdays, April through July, and focuses on values of education, community service, discipline, leadership and sisterhood.
