Late Requests

The Police Pipe & Drum Band "could" use a couple of volunteers to carry the Society banner at two eminent events, the December 3rd Anaheim Friends Outside parade and the December 4th San Pedro Christmas Parade. Please contact Pipe Major Scott Walton @  if you are available to carry the banner.

The December meeting and holiday gathering for the Society is graciously being hosted again this year by the Waltons at their home in the Bixby Knolls section of Long Beach. Please RSVP if you will attend our gathering at 7 p.m. on December 14th. You are asked to bring your own food and beverage but there'll be plenty for everyone.

We promise great camaraderie and a fun evening but we need you to stop by if only for a few moments. RSVP to  and we'll send you directions.

PS If you've already RSVP'd, we have your response and look forward to seeing you.
