The Salvation Army marched to the flagpole today to salute the arriving tall ships — all a part of their Red Shield Appeal.

“It’s a thank-you to the community, a thank-you to all of our supporters, and most of all it’s a thank-you to God,” said Calvin Ming, the Divisional Director of Public Relations and Development.

The divisional band, headed by band master Warren Jones, marched through Front Street and performed the Naval hymn. The march continued to City Hall where a half-hour programme featured performances by the Salvation Army’s divisional band, Paget Primary School choir, and by violinist Tranell Nisbett. Speeches were made by Governor John Rankin, culture minister Nandi Outerbridge and divisional commander Frank Pittman.
