E. Division Pipe Band, Tartan Day, April. 2014

While our colleagues in the East are thinking about a possible end to a long and snowy winter, our thoughts on the west coast are turning to daffodils, cherry blossoms and spring concerts. And with International Tartan Day landing smack in the middle of this early spring, the RCMP E. Division Pipe Band is again planning to celebrate.

On April 25, at the Riverside Palace Banquet Hall in Richmond, the band will hold its 2nd annual Tartan Day ceilidh. For the past few months the band has been preparing a repertoire of music that will form the major part of the evenings entertainment. Drum Major Mike Guillemin, Pipe Major Hugh Peden and our new Drum Sgt. Gregor

Merry will lead the band through their paces. The professional dance troupe Shot of Scotch (Vancouver) Highland Dancers will also participate in the ceilidh with a number of performances. There will be a silent auction, whisky tasting and of course a full meal followed by dancing.

The ceilidh is the major fundraiser for the pipe band, and is a great evening of entertainment, camaraderie and Celtic spirit. Formal highland or tartan evening wear is requested. But if you don’t have a kilt, don’t worry. Bring a clan tartan scarf, tie or sash and

A great crowd and appreciative audience.
