It would be no exaggeration to say that the Cranbrook Girls Bugle Band is probably Cranbrook’s best known ambassador. And it is Pat Ronalds who so capably and energetically directs this band of eleven to eighteen year old girls, carrying on a seventy year tradition. The effort that Pat gives to all aspects of the band including practices, raising funds for uniforms and tours and traveling to parades in Alberta, BC and the US is extraordinary. She is a mentor to the girls, helping them to be independent, to be leaders and to encourage them to deal head-on with challenges. Pat is a positive role model who inspires these young women to be their very best.
