Memorial Parade 2005

MMFB Memorial Parade 2005

Unfortunately, the band has within the last couple of years lost two members that have made it what it is today. James Green had conducted the band for a great many years and has brought the band to their high level of deportment and musical ability that they display today. Noel McGrath was also a highly esteemed band member and vice-president, who was greatly respected within the band for his wisdom and ability to get things done. These two men, with over a century of service to the band between them will forever be Millar men. Therefore since their deaths, the band has held their own memorial parade for them which has been held on the first Friday in June for the past number of years. This parade has attracted many friends of the band who are in the Loyal Institutions, who now parade behind the band.
