Community Service

Today The British Columbia Regiment Irish Pipes and Drums (affectionately referred to as "the Irish") is an all-volunteer band made up of civilian women, men and youth of diverse ethnic origins. The members of the band finance their operation through many fundraising events and the kind donations of supporters. The band plays at various civic functions, charitable events, parades, and military functions in the Metro Vancouver Area. As well, members volunteer for community events like the 148 Legion's BBQ Chicken event every summer.
