Ed Snyder is one of the band’s original founding members and is responsible for the design of our uniform that we wear to this day. To say that Ed has made an impact on our band is an understatement. To honor his commitment to the band and all the good works he has done on behalf of the band, he has been made a Legacy Pipe Sergeant for life. Congratulations Ed on this great achievement!
Congratulations to Matt Lopez for being promoted to Pipe Sergeant! Matt was a Pipe Corporal and this is another well deserved promotion!
Congratulations to our newest Pipe Sergeant, Tom Clappi! Tom was a Pipe Corporal and is the band’s Treasurer. This is a well deserved promotion!
On Wednesday July 4, 2018 Steve Cochran stepped down as the Pipe Major after many years of faithful service. He has turned the reins over to Steve Boulton as the new Pipe Major. Congratulations to Steve Boulton on a well deserved promotion! Steve Cochran will still be around, just now as the Pipe Major Emeritus.
