Busy 2016 What a year

Christmas parades in December brought to a close a very busy calendar year for the Band.  On December 4th a couple of our members joined in with the Greater Boston Ff Pipes & Drums to march in the annual Maynard Christmas parade. The weather was partly sunny and a brisk 38 degrees or so.  Not to be outdone though the following week the Band marched in the Hampstead NH Christmas parade with a chilly temperature around 30 degrees.  Despite the challenges of playing in the cold both parades were a success and a great way to end a great year for the band.
