Smith Falls, ONT Canada
In 1987, the new era’s incarnation of the Lampliters won the New York State Junior B title in their first competition. This was no small feat for a corps that had been decimated in years past and relegated to small street band status. The corps again demonstrated their ability by placing third in both the Ontario and Canadian National Championships in the Junior B Class after eleven years of absence from the top ranks.
The Lampliters is unique in that it is both a junior and a senior corps. When participating in junior events or competitions, only members under age 22 perform. When taking part in senior events, all members march.
Ken Cole is the corps’ manager. At age 78, he has been a stalwart of the Lampliters for more than fifty years. He is proud to have been honored as Volunteer of the Year in Smiths Falls in 2001.
