50th Anniversary of the Band

Planning is now underway to celebrate the landmark of the 50th anniversary of the band's formation in early 1965.

Preliminary organisation at this stage includes: the celebration will be in the form of a dinner in June 2015 - a venue and firm date are currently being explored; Past and present members of the band and other members of the South Australian Pipe Band fraternity will be invited to the event; the band history on the website will be updated, paying particular attention to the past 15 years; and significant service to the band over the past 50 years will be recognised.

Updates on the celebration will be added to this blog from time to time.

New Members

Jenni Goodwin (Piper) and Katelyn Timmings (Tenor) were made members of the band at the October committee meeting. Both are a very welcome addition to the band. Jenni played out with the band  for the first time at the Norwood Pageant and Katelyn at the Salisbury Pageant.
