Hi everybody! My name is Dave Schackow and I am a firefighter/paramedic in South Bend, Indiana. We have just recently formed a bagpipe band called the South Bend Metropolitan Police and Fire Pipe Band. The band is made up of several veteran pipers and drummers, some of which are local police and firefighters. (I am not yet an official band member--I am currently a bagpipe student.) Anyway, the band is selling patches to raise funds (the band is self-supported). The patches are $5.00 plus shipping. We also have T-shirts available with the same logo on the left chest. The patch can be seen here:


If anyone is interested, send me an email at schack34@yahoo.com

Thanks and stay safe.

Lt. David Schackow, SBFD
