On Friday May 11th, 2007, the Transit Police Celtic Society held its first annual Spring Thaw @ the Celtic Cottage in Long Branch. There was a very good turnout and it was the first time the Pipe Band performed with its new members in front of all the members of the Society.
A special thank you goes out to everyone who came and supported the Society. And of course a BIG thank you to Kevin Martin from the Celtic Cottage for making everything possible.
