Chattahoochee Celtic Pipes and Drums

This band was formed by Rory Howe, with the Roswell Police Department, with the thought of being the first Law Enforcement agency in the state to have a police pipe band. It is a paramilitary band, consisting of 12-16 individual pipers and drummers who all have the same love of the Scottish tradition and the skirl of the pipes, wearing the Chattahoochee tartan designed specifically for Roswell, by the Scottish Borders, during the ’96 Olympics. The award-winning band plays for numerous civic and community events, parades, and ceremonies, including the annual Roswell Memorial Day Ceremony.

Our Emcee will be: Moby

Once again Roswell Remembers Memorial Day Ceremony will be hosted by Moby. Moby has a 25-year history as the top morning DJ in Dallas, Houston, and Atlanta, where he was the top-rated morning personality for 10 years. He is creator of “The Biggest Small Town in AMERICA (sm) Radio Network.”

Known for his patriotism, Moby’s respect for those who serve our country, and those who have given their all, is evident as he emcees the military portion of the ceremony.
