North Country Citation Plate

Citation to accompany the award of the North Country Citation Plate, the 22nd day of May 2022, St. Lawrence University

"St. Lawrence University awards the North Country Citation of 2022 to the Brockville Pipes & Drums. Since its inception in 1931, this parade and concert band has lent its distinctive musical voice to events throughout our community, which spans the international border from eastern Ontario to northern New York. The Brockville Pipes & Drums have added immeasurable richness and joy to some of the most important moments in the lives of generations of Laurentian students and families. It is our honor to recognize one of the oldest pipe bands in Canada — also a volunteer organization — for its work with veterans and its participation in parades, and countless ceremonies, including graduations in New York’s North Country."

Congratulations to all!"
