Round Up Band Marches into 2015 with New Truck
Just prior to last years Stampede The Calgary Round Up Band knew their old truck was on its last legs. The logistics of moving instruments, equipment and 12-15 year old performers from practice to performance is a major achievement in itself. Nursing an aging truck through another year would be crazy.
The Band which was started in 1956 by The Calgary Police Service has become one of the finest bands of it's kind in Canada and has entertained millions of people all over the world. Barry Hensch President of the Calgary Round Up Band association didn't Mark Time but marched straight to his Kinsmen friends for help.
The Kinsmen were certanly sympathetic, coordinating hundreds of volunteers has been the hallmark of the Calgary club for the last 90 years. A special vote was set-up and the Calgary club said yes to the 2015 capital request. These funds come through the sale of tickets on the Kinsmen
Wheels prizes at The Calgary Stampede Lotteries. Both the Kinsmen and The Round Up Band would like to thank the Kinsmen wheels volunteers for their hard work in raising this money to make thier truck dreams come true.
