2014 Fall wrap up

An excellent end to an excellent year.  The fourth quarter began with us taking part in the NH Memorial Stair climb on September 7th honoring and remembering the firefighters and police who died in the World Trade Center attacks of 9/11. We were honored to play for the opening ceremony. We were also honored to take part in two additional ceremonies on September 11th as the Chelmsford Fire Dept dedicated its 9/11 memorial and then on 9/13 to dedicate the new Groton Fire Headquarters. The month was not without sadness as we held true to our mission and piped to his final rest a retired Pelham NH Firefighter on Sept 18th.   Ending on an upbeat we finished the month of September by taking part in the NH Highland Games Sept 19-21.  The band competed in the Grade 5 level and placed 15th with very respectable comments. We were very pleased to have our newest members out on the field of competition and their hard work contributed to seeing an improvement in our standings.  Pipe Sgt Rick Tustin competed in the Grade 4Sr Piobaireachd solo competition on Sunday and finished fourth.  Congratulations to Pipe Sgt Tustin and the entire band. A very usy month of September. Read More
