Burns Nicht 2015 is history! I hope everyone enjoyed the evening. Right now, while it is
still fresh, please take a minute to jot down BOTH what you enjoyed and what you missed. We
need those notes for next years planning.
If anyone retrieved a black mess dress jacket with USAF buttons on it size small please return it to
any San Antonio Pipes & Drums member or call 210-599-0278. It belongs to one of our young
band members who took it off and put it on a table by the dance floor to dance and was gone
when she came back.
