On Thursday, February 28, 2008 the band received a frantic call from PowerSecure of Wake Forest, North Carolina. They were in need of a band to perform on Friday, February 29th as a parachuting team brought the United States flag from the sky at their employee appreciation event – yes…parachutes. The band they hired cancelled on them at the last minute and they requested the assistance of from the members of Wake & District. Although last minute, the band was able to field 7 pipers, 2 sides, a bass drummer and a tenor drummer – large allotment indeed to play, not parachute in kilts.
“Thanks” is not enough for the members who gave up their time to assist PowerSecure with their event and raise $2500 for the band! Yes, $2500. Those members are hear-by presented with the 2nd designated band award “show me the money” uniform ribbon (pictured below).
The following band members are hearby awarded the designated band award “show me the money”:
This donation will be used to purchase some kilts and drum equipment.
