MAXVILLE, Ontario – While the Glengarry Highland Games will not be taking place again this year, those missing that authentic Scottish sound of bagpipes can still get the next best thing; a PiperGram.

“If you or someone you love is missing the sound and sight of the highland games, consider sending a PiperGram on July 31 2021,” reads a statement from the Glengarry Highland Games. “Reserve a Piper, Drummer or Highland Dancer for a friend, family member or neighbour and we will send out members from our band to their address and play a selection of tunes and deliver a personal message from you! Each PiperGram sent will support the Glengarry Pipe Band.”

PiperGrams are available to anyone in Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry and Cornwall, with the Glengarry Highland Games prepared to attempt to accommodate requests in Ottawa as well.

Additionally, if a loved one is not within the stated coverage area, the Glengarry Highland Games is prepared to send Virtual PiperGrams via YouTube with personalized messages.

To learn more about the PiperGrams, or to request one, please visit the Glengarry Highland Games website.
