As a young man john was paid by Colonial Williamsburg to perform with the Fife and Drum Corps. Being in close touch with a part of our nation’s history with which Colonial Williamsburg was founded John later transferred to playing Bagpipes in Charlottesville. Today, John is a proud member the Albemarle Pipes & Drums Corps.
Being a part of the Albemarle Pipes & Drums is a form of community service for him. The Pipe band performs, teaches, and preserves the music and culture of Scotland and the British Isles through the music of the Great Highland Bagpipes both locally and throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Pictured here is John doing a Palm Sunday service at Grace Episcopal church.The next Pipe band event will be marching in the Dogwood Parade April 22nd.
As I am now working with John on his campaign I am discovering he has many talents to share. Early on I felt convinced he would be a good leader in county governance.
