Welcome to Anavets Assiniboia Unit #283 Winnipeg
Canadas oldest Veterans Organization

Pipe n Drum Band                   Rob Gillespie

The Band was very honoured to play at the Dominion Convention Parade on September 11th. We combined our efforts with members of the ANAF 303 Rockwood Pipes and Drums and everyone had a wonderful time. Pipe Major Bill MacQuarrie piped for the opening and closing of the Convention.
The feedback has been very positive and everyone was very appreciative of the Band's performances, We will now begin to practice for this year's Remembrance Day Ceremony .
The members of the Band would like to thank the membership for their continued support of our Friday night 50/50 Draw.


Welcome!! Come and check us out!!!

We are an adult band who practice every Thursday night at our Anavets Assiniboia Unit #283 Hall 3584 Portage Avenue Winnipeg, MB R3K 0Z8
