resurrected in its current incarnation in 2005, and was incorporated as a non-profit
society in the spring of 2007. The band tartan is a hunting Stewart

|Little Miss Lileigh-Anne joined the band at a couple of its rehearsals in the first half of June, and insisted on marching with the band in the Legion parking lot. Here she is playing along while the band practised in a circle.|
The band will be on hiatus until September 9, when we hold our fall general meeting, 7 PM at the Lethbridge Legion.
The regular winter rehearsal and
teaching program begins Wednesdays, starting on September 16.
The band welcomes both interested newcomers without any prior experience and
experienced pipers and drummers to join us. Where possible, absolute beginners will
be given tuition in a group setting free of charge, although because of the demands
placed on limited rehearsal time, beginners are advised to seek out additional
individual instruction outside band practice time. Band members can suggest suitable
teachers for piping and drumming.
Regular (free) beginner practice chanter sessions will resume
Saturday, September 12, at
the Legion at 10 AM.
