Passing of Mrs. Baggs

September 24, 2017

I'm sad to inform you that Mrs. Baggs passed away on Saturday, September 23, 2017.

Mrs. Baggs was the wife of Al 'Daddy' Baggs, the man who was responsible for the existence of the band that ultimately became the Toronto Optimists Drum and Bugle Corps. As a member of the women's auxiliary, she was a long time supporter of both the Toronto Optimists and it's sponsor, the Optimists Club of Downtown Toronto.

She was a wonderful person who will be missed by all who knew her.
