April 2018 Gathering

Mesa Caedonian Pipe BandIn place of a Gathering at the ICC for April, we are encouraging our members to join the Mesa Caledonian Pipe Band in celebrating Tartan Day, Saturday, April 7, at:

A Tartan Day Concert

Join Arizona's premier Scottish pipe band for a celebration of Tartan Day. A national holiday in the United States since 1998, Tartan Day recognizes Scottish heritage and Scottish contributions throughout history.

This concert will explore the traditions of piping and drumming from the ancient music that has been passed down through centuries, to modern compositions re-imagined with a highland flair. Following the concert will be a reception with silent auction of Scottish themed items and an opportunity to socialize with the band and others in the Arizona Scottish community.

Location: St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 322 N. Horne, Mesa
Date/Time: Saturday, April 7th, 2018 at 4 PM
Cost: $10 per person / FREE for children 10 & under
Reception: 50/50 Raffle and Silent Auction follow immediately

All proceeds benefit the programs of the Mesa Caledonian Pipe Band, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization.
