with their group until after their performance – if you are going to sit with
your family; you need to keep a close eye on the schedule so you don’t miss
your number! If any parents are interested in volunteering to keep a
section of performers together and on schedule, please contact Jane. See you there!
If you still don't have a Christmas present for that family member who has everything, why not give them a ticket to the College of Piping 2013 Robbie Burns Fundraising Gala (and while you're at it, why not buy one for yourself as well!)?! Tickets are $100.00 (with each ticket receiving a $75.00 tax receipt) and the event promises a fantastic bang for your buck! Entertainment will be provided by College staff and the extremely talented students of the College of Piping. The event will see the debut of the newly formed Grade 4 Pipe Band and it will also unveil the College of Piping Dance Company. There will be the traditional three course roast beef dinner (along with the famous address to the haggis). You don't have a good enough reason not to come!!!
