The Mayor of Honolulu remembered the pipe band’s previous visits including the retreat ceremony to honour President Kennedy and presented the band with a proclamation from the city of Honolulu. The Mayor paid tribute to the pipe band by declaring February 15th, 1991, “Vancouver Police Pipe Band Day” in Honolulu. During this trip, the United States was actively involved in the Gulf War with Iraq and the band asked to play in a ceremony honouring their armed forces. This wish was granted and the pipe band performed at Fort Shafter on evening as the Stars and Stripes was lowered for the night.
