CORPS Photos

Originally, the Senators were started by the Toronto Police Association as a senior marching band which lasted until 1967. The Brampton Police Assoc. took over the name and uniforms in late 1967, early 1968 and turned it into a junior parade corps, headed up by corps director Bill Reilly. They marched in the early days primarily in S. Ontario. In the parade class, the Senators won many 1st place awards in the category of junior corps. with less than 50 members. The Senators Drum and Bugle Corps executive included Robert Davis, corps director, Carol Davis, treasurer, Amy Stevens, registrar and Linda Murray, booster club president.

In 1972, they moved into the competition circuit by entering into the Stand-Still class. In 1973, they decided to move up into the Junior. C class. The drum corps was sponsored by a number of different organizations over years including the Brampton German Hansa Club, Brampton Legion and also funded by the Town of Brampton. The, then City of Brampton, in 1976 canceled all funding and the Senators Drum Corps tried to keep going, but eventually disbanded in 1978.

In 1980, two former members, Len Kerr & Timothy Stevens, set up a meeting with city officials, business groups and community organizations to try to secure funding or sponsorship to revive the corps. Unfortunately they showed no interest in doing so.
