The Pleasanton posts of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion are co-hosting the 2010 awards dinner of the northern branch of the Western United States Pipe Band Association.
The group will open the "ceilidh" (Scottish social gathering) at 7 p.m. after a $10-a-plate spaghetti dinner and awards presentation to the top pipe bands from the region. Then the music -- or piping -- begins, with the hall expected to be filled with bagpipers from Sacramento to San Francisco, including some of the top bagpipe bands in the country.
Donna Willy, who is a popular piper at Pleasanton events along with her fellow bagpiper husband John, encourages those who play a bagpipe to join in the fun.
