800 attend Delta Police Pipe Band’s Robbie Burns dinners

The Delta Police Pipe Band hosted 800 people at a pair of Robbie Burns dinners last month at the Sacred Heart Church Hall in Ladner.

Under the direction of pipe major Steve Ramsden and drum major Moe Coll, the crowds were entertained by the pipe band’s three performances, the regimental dancers and pipers and songs by the band’s singing group, The Deltones.

The Thistlebrook highland dancers were also in the program and the exceptional dance band The Earthtones delighted the crowd with great dancing music later in the evening.

On the first night the band honoured Delta Coun. Lois Jackson and Delta Police Chief Neil Dubord and on the second night the band toasted Gail Parker, who was one of the founders of the band in 1971, and Lloyd Jones from the Tsawwassen Legion for his continued support over the years.

The dinners serve as a fundraiser for the band which travelled to Basel, Switzerland and Estes Park, Colorado to perform in military tattoos last year.

The band would like to thank the following for their great support throughout the year:  Chief Neil Dubord and the Delta Police Department, Mayor George Harvie, Coun. Lois Jackson and the City of Delta, the Ladner and Tsawwassen branches of the Royal Canadian Legion, the Ladner and Tsawwassen Save-On Foods, Four Winds Brewery, Barry Marshall, Sacred Heart Church and the Delta Optimist.
