9/11 Freedom Walk 2011

9/11/2010 7:34:09 PM

September 11, 2011 -  We gathered at dawn on the banks of the Mississippi River near the USS Kidd to pay our respects to the fallen 911 heroes. We presented a large band which drew a larger crowd from the levee.   It was an honor to be able to provide band members to two other events - a church in Greenwell Springs and another memorial service in Lafayette.   We also hustled to provide two more last-minute requests including playing Taps on the bagpipes.  Our band tries hard to meet to growing needs in our greater community in south Louisiana. To those band members unable to attend due to illness or travel, return to us soon.  May God continue to bless us.

 

  2010 - Today our band joined other Americans from across the country in paying homage to the heroes of 9/11 with a Freedom Walk at the USS Kidd.  As the crowd gathered, our duty band played a special selection of music for the occasion.  After the ceremony, we provided music for the patriots as they marched downtown.  It was an honor to be a part of this event.
