    Description

Preston Scout House Band, of Cambridge, includes about 200 regular and associate members, making it one of the largest organizations of its type in Canada.  Marching members of this popular drum and bugle corps come from more than 20 communities across Ontario and have previously been associated with more than 70 marching music organizations.

Associate members are a vital part of the organization, providing support in such areas as fund raising, publicity, recruiting, souvenir sales, parade assistance, catering for social events, photograph and video production

In 2013, Scout House celebrated the 75th anniversary of its founding in 1938 as an innovative activity for members of the 1st Preston Boy Scout Troop, under the leadership of town pharmacist Wilf Blum.  The band is named after the restored stable for brewery horses that became the home of the troop in the 1930s.  Scout House became independent of the Boy Scout organization in 1954, adapting the Boy Scout uniform to tight black shorts, short-sleeved maroon tops, white gauntlets and Aussie-style hats.  Before disbanding in 1967, Scout House performed each year from the American Midwest to the Atlantic coast, traveling up to eight thousand miles a year while winning more than 80 international, national, provincial and regional titles.
