Welcome to the Bands Newsletter!
We are about ready to begin our 2020 St. Patrick’s Day Parades!!!! I hope everyone is well rested and ready for what appears to be a very busy start to our parade season!
The Oswego parade is this coming Saturday. Step-off time is 1:00. It looks like we are going to be a bit “light” in our Pipe section this year!!!! Doug is recovering from his knee surgery and hopes to be back on the street with us ASAP!!!!! Unfortunately, it won’t be in time for Oswego!!!! Wish him a healthy and speedy recovery!!!!!
We’ve got a number of individuals that are very close to stepping out with us on their bagpipes!!!! They will all be a very WELCOME sight for the band!!!! (We’ve waited a LONG time for them to “be ready”!!!!) They’ve all got some hard work ahead of them, but we are a FAMILY, and we are all here to help them along their “Highlander” journey!!!!
I posted our newest video, Music in the Parks, Tully, NY to our Facebook and soon to our website! The band put on an excellent performance in Tully!!! The addition of our Singing Talent in the band was a huge success!!! Lets start working on a 2020 Program!!!!!
I’d like to add some information to our “Meet the Band Members” section!!!! Photo’s and some “personal information” would be nice for our “fans” to read up on!!!! Maybe a little “background” on you and why you got interested in the Pipe Band???
I sent out a “tentative” Recruitment Poster yesterday. I would like some “feedback” on that?? I moved the date to the first Tuesday in May, at the recommendation from Debbie. She thought the end of April was a big “election” night and might keep people from attending?
Upcoming parades for the month:
Oswego………………March 7…………@ 1:00
Syracuse…………….March 14……….@ 12:00
Camden……………..March 21……….@ 2:00
Holy Cross………….March 28………@ 5:30 (International Night – Fundraiser) If you’re available to help out??
