People often ask, "Do you have a favorite show?" And, let me tell you, hands down, the show we do with the BPD's Gaelic Column is not only our best, but it is easily my favorite. I love this show for so many reasons but mainly because it highlights the talent, kindness and compassion of the band we affectionately call the "Pipes & Drums". Every St. Patrick's Day the band starts off their holiday with a trip to the Franciscan Hospital for Children. It's their way of spreading St. Patrick's cheer to a group of kids looking for a reason to be cheerful. As you're about to see in the video taken of the occassion, the looks and expressions on the faces of the children tell the story. Clearly, they're happy to see the band, and the band, as told to me by Pipe Major Joe Cheevers, couldn't be happier to see and play for them. Respectfully submitted, Officer James 'Jamie' Kenneally.
