HMCS Tecumseh Christmas Concert
The HMCS Tecumseh Band held its 5th Annual Family Christmas Concert on 15 December 2002 at its home unit in Calgary.  The band performed a variety of Christmas tunes including It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year, I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas, and We Wish You A Merry Christmas.  Also performing were the RCSCC Undaunted Band and the a cappella vocal group, The Heebee-jeebees.  This was the most entertaining concert to date, and audience members showed their appreciation by generously donating toys, food and cash to help out Calgary's needy families.

The gracefulness of the dancers is apparent in the way they seemingly float above the ground.
