The Citizens Band aided in the wreath-laying ceremony at the town cenotaph on November 11th, playing O Canada, God Save the Queen and Abide With Me. During the ceremony, our trumpeter Ann Hennessey played Last Post and Rouse.
The Citizens Band will play its annual Christmas Concert at the Mount Allison Chapel on the evening of Wed. December 10th. The ambience and acoustics of the Chapel made last year’s concert a delight to play, so the Band is very pleased to be returning and again hosted by the Mount A. Chaplin, John Perkin. The concert begins at 7pm and will include a variety of sacred and popular Christmas tunes, as well as seasonal favourites.
The following map indicates the location of the chapel:
