The Melfort Pipe Band

The Melfort and District Museum kindly provided a copy of a history of the Melfort Pipe Band. We scanned a good portion of it and it tells about the band formation, early members, and lots of the details about the band oveer the years, including its life later on as "The Carrot River Valley Pipe Band".
