Speaking of the pipes…the Scottish Rites very own general secretary Randy Brill plaid the pipes for the very first time  in public with his son who is a drummer for the oldest drum and pipe corps in Chicago…wow father and son… how cool is that. ILL. Brill decided at the end of the last dinner he would attempt this feat…MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Wow…you need to go and view the video’s i have posted….
