Thought we needed a winter break so here is the Towpath Volunteer Fife and Drum Band who are out of Macedon, New York.  They are know the world over.  Band is made up of volunteers of all ages from school children to senior citizens and everyone in between.  You don't have to know how to play an instrument to join.  If someone is interested they provide the instrument and teach you how to play it.  They have traveled to play at Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, Savannah, Georgia St. Patrick's Day Parade, Disney World, England, Greece, France and more.  Each person must provide their own finances when the band travels although they do have dinners, etc. to help. Most of the band members are from Palmyra and Macedon.  The above pictures were taken during the Canal Town Parade in Palmyra last September.

It's so nice to see no coats and no snow. This must be an impressive band to be so well traveled. Palmyra and Macedon must be proud to have them.

Good Morning Carol,

Canal Town Days in September this year, we are having Fife & Drum bands come in from all around the world to perform. I don't know all the details yet. It is going to be the first time to happen.
