|Pocono Region Pipes and Drums is a non-profit corporation, that was founded in 1997, by a group of men, with the common interest in music, the bagpipes, and the love for the Celtic heritage.|
The group has grown to include, men and woman, of all ages, from all walks of life. And is still growing. And working hard to look and sound our best, because we are proud of our heritage and our music.
Our logo is the creation of Jack Rundle; an original member, now retired. Jack's hand drawing was slightly modified, and made into the patch that the band proudly wears on our uniforms. The band engaged Hilton McLaurin Studio, Celtic Design DBA to craft this logo into a badge for our Glengarry.
The uniform we wear consists of a black glengarry, black military sweater and turtleneck for cold days, tan uniform short-sleeved shirt, Ancient MacCallum Kilt, green and blue Hose Tops, green flashes, and spats. The band chose the Ancient MacCallum tartan because of the nice combinations of blues and greens and is not over used.
Over the years the band has held practice in several towns locations in the area. Presently we hold practice at the Eagles Club on Fifth St. Stroudsburg PA. Wednesday nights from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM
The band has marched in parades held in Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg, Jim Thorpe, Nesquehoning, Summit Hill, Palmerton, and Pen Argyl, in PA. Franklin, Blairstown, Sparta, Rumson, and Raritan, in NJ, New York City, and West Point, in NY.
The band has played in Celtic Festivals in Green Lane Park and Lancaster County, in PA.
And we have competed in Hunter Mt, Nassau county, NY, Stony Point, NY, and the Garden State Art Center. The band has made the prize list four times in eight attempts.
All The Best;
Hope to see you at practice soon
