News - 2006 Season Winds Up


LFD at Fort Henry, September 2006.
The 2006 season is over, but people have just begun to talk about it… What an incredible Summer! In just eight months the Loyalist Fifes and Drums have exceeded anyone’s expectations. The unit has shown exemplary drill and musical skill in every performance, developed close friendships and most of all had a lot of fun.

Over the past season the Corps has performed across Ontario, at such events as the Canada Day Parade in Bath, the Loyalist Landing at the UEL Park in Adolphustown, the Fort George Fife and Drum Muster in Niagara On the Lake, The Rose House Museum Rev War Re-enactment in Picton, and at Fort Henry in Kingston. At every event observers were impressed by the degree of professionalism show by every member of the unit.

Most astonishing was the corps’ ability to uniform itself in such a short time. Much thanks to the dedication and efforts of Fife Major Andrea Putnam, who painstakingly hand sewed 12 musician’s coats, 12 caps, 12 pairs of breeches and as many shirts, neck cloths and haversacks before the season began. This amazing accomplishment was also made possible with the financial support of the Bay of Quinte Branch of the UEL association, The Dominion Branch of the UEL association and a number of private donors. The corps also managed to raise funds through its performances at a number of events.

The Corps will now begin its off-season practice schedule, and prepare for another exciting season of fifing and Drumming.
