became“D”Company – Buffalo City Guard – Gordon Highlanders.Today’s Company, though ready to serve God and Country, is no longer a combat unit, we are now a parade organization consisting of drums, pipes and color guard, proudly upholding our military traditions. On 28 April 2012 we will be

As part of the festivities we hold a Chinese auction and raffle and I would like to ask you to consider making a donation. Any type or size of donation would be greatly appreciated and would help make our evening a success. All donors will be recognized for their contribution and support.
