Close to 100 people crowded the Place Des Arts salon in Coquitlam on Saturday, November 5 for the 2022 BC Pipers’ Association Grand Aggregate Award Ceremony and Volunteer Recognition Ceilidh.

Dave Hilder (Scottish Power Pipe Band) hosted the evening which awarded the top prizes to pipers, drummers and pipe bands for their success in 2022 and recognized all the volunteers who help with BCPA operations throughout the year.

The top volunteer award, the Mary MacKinnon Memorial Service Award, was presented to Shelley Mutch-Thorsteinson of Victoria for her years of service to the piping, drumming and pipe band community throughout British Columbia.
