Pipe and Drum Corp at the 2015 Best of the West EventDressed in uniform shirts with full Scottish regalia, including kilts and sporrans, members of the Pipes and Drums of the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office will receive a commendation from the County Board of Supervisors at its Tuesday, Dec. 15, meeting at 9 a.m. at 70 West Hedding St. in San Jose.

Band members partnered this fall with the Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation Department to further its program to bring music “Bach to Nature” by offering exceptional musicians to perform outdoor concerts in County parks.

The 20-member band is an all-volunteer group. It plays at about 50 community events every year.

This year’s highlights include the memorial service for San Jose Police Dept. Officer Michael Johnson, Every 15 Minutes presentations at local high schools, the Rose White and Blue Parade on Independence Day and escorting WWII vets returning from an Honor Flight at San Francisco International Airport.

Sponsored by the Sheriff’s Advisory Board, the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association of Santa Clara County and the Peace Officers Research Association of California, band members have logged 892 hours of volunteer time so far this year.
