 The Royal Canadian Legion Drill Team appears wearing the Royal Stewart Tartan and marches to the tunes of many local bagpipe bands.  They have won numerous awards for precision drill competitions.

 

They have been honored to appear in the following parades:  The Lorain International Celebration, the Akron Soap Box Derby, the Cleveland, Ohio, 500, the Milan Ohio Melon Festival, the Vermillion Ohio Wooly Bear Festival, the Cleveland St. Patrick's Day celebration, the Vermillion Festival of the Fish, the Akron Christmas parade and were privileged to march with 500 pipebands from all over the world at the New York City Tartan Day parade.

 

They have made numerous appearances over the years including a performance at E.J. Thomas Hall in Akron showcasing International Nationality Night.  They were in the receiving line when Prince Charles of England arrived at Cleveland Airport for a brief, rare visit.

 

This drill team has been an annual part of the Ohio Scottish Games in Wellington, Ohio.  They continue to promote their heritage throughout northern Ohio, Western Michigan, and Windsor Canada appearing at Canadian Legion Convention events and for other veteran and service organizations in their own district.  For additional information, please contact:
