I wanted to reach out and see if we could trouble you for a bagpiper for the Fire-Police 9/11 memorial event held at the “Manhattan” condominiums on Saturday, Sept. 10?

The climb up the outside staircase to the 26th floor starts at 0845 AM , with the ceremony staring at 0800 AM. (Don’t worry the ceremony is downstairs – so no need to hoof it up -, but I would like the bagpiper to get on the roof of a two-story building next to it for bigger effect).

The address is:
The Manhattan
4561 Olde Perimeter Way
Atlanta, GA 30346

Would love to have one your MAPES guys there!
