HIS TROMBONE PLAYS ON    

An avid trombonist, Father Demske often delighted the Canisius College and Western New York communities with his performances.  For this reason, the trombone is used as the symbol of the Demske Society and distinguishes our alumni and friends who have included Canisius in their estate plans.
