Arizona Emerald Society Pipes and Drums

“The bagpipe is much used by the Irish: to its sound this unconquered fierce and warlike people march their armies and encourage each other to deeds of valor. With it they also accompany the dead to the grave making such sorrowful sounds as to invite, nay to compel the bystander to weep.”
Vincenzo Galilei – 1581
A group of like minded individuals from the Arizona Law Enforcement Emerald Society and the Phoenix Fire Fighters Emerald Society are interested in forming a joint Police and Fire Emerald Society pipe and drum band.  Band membership will be open to all active, associate, and honorary members of the societies.  The Band’s mission will be to support fraternity and brotherhood between the Law Enforcement and Fire Fighters Emerald Societies, to support all community police and fire departments throughout the valley, to support the activities of the Phoenix Irish Cultural Center, and to support our community as a whole. The Band will be a non-competition band, wear the Irish solid green kilt, and play predominately Irish pipe tunes.
To learn more about this exciting opportunity please contact Ed Collins, 480-216-7748, or email

Robert Burns Supper
Celebrating the Life & Time of Robert Burns:  Scotland's Own Bard
On only one day out of the year, a special event takes place in almost every country in the world. It has been part of the Scottish culture for over 200 years where men and women get to dress up formally and meet up with descendents and lovers of Scotland, for a gastro-literary celebration of the life and works of the poet Robert Burns. It is an event that transcends time, geographical borders, political and religious beliefs, to bring people together in a traditional Scottish feast.
