The National Tartan Day is officially recognized as the celebration of Scots-American achievement. Held every April 6th to commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320 (the influences from which can be found in America’s own Declaration of Independence).  National Tartan Day has only been around in an official capacity since 1998, when nationwide grassroots efforts led to resolution in the U.S. Senate. Since then, Scots-American groups from New York to St. Louis to San Diego have shown their pride on a growing annual basis.  Don your kilts, toast to your ancestors and celebrate National Tartan Day with your fellow Scots!

St Patrick's Weekend


The band is off to a great start this year. They played a wide variety of gigs over the course of the weekend. The big event was the Bay City St. Patrick's Day Parade. It was a beautiful day for a parade.

There were many good commnets and several inquiries for future MIMF performances and others.
We had a much bigger footprint this year than expected.

Special thanks to Kyle Welfare and Caledonia Fighting Scots Pipe Band. Your group did fantastic!
Thanks you "Windsor Reunion" and Lee and Kurt and Doc for hanging in there all day

I can't forget the use of me brother's camping trailer. Thank you for gig day accomodations!
It was good to see Raya and Tim Womac! 

We also wish to thank the family, friends, and volunteers that work with the band. Without your support, we would not be the pipe band we are. Thank you everyone.
