The Wake and District pipe band CREED shirt were  available via Booster.com — we sold over 175 shirts — raising over $1150.00  — THANK YOU to everyone who ordered one of these awesome shirts.

For those unaware For Our Fallen is our motto;
it is everything we stand for.

This was a LIMITED EDITION — black — short-sleeved — 100% cotton t-shirt — featuring our motto “for our fallen” emblazoned on the front — and a punisher style skull (with checkered glengarry) on the back with the first verse of our creed “Through howl of wind and showers of rain. We play for the living, the dead and the slain“.

 


Through howl of wind and showers of rain.
We play for the living, the dead and the slain.
Our tunes they are the sound of an angels swoon.
For our enemies the sound of their coming doom.
Be you married or buried our band sounds true.
Whenever we’re needed we’ll play there for you.

On Saturday, 05 May 2012 Wake & District members participated on the 7th Annual North Carolina Fallen Fire Fighters memorial service held at Nash Square in Raleigh, NC. As the ceremony was nearing its end – organizers became aware severe weather was about to roll through and expedited the conclusion of the services. As Wake & District pipers and drummers surrounded the memorial to play Amazing Grace — the sky fell a-flood and everything stood still for just a moment as Lee Wilson captured the above photo of band members at attention as the sound of TAPS resonated through the air. This image is powerful and speaks volumes to our program which honors those who sacrifice their lives to serve others; FOR OUR FALLEN is everything we stand for. Thank you to Lee Wilson who – as always – was there to capture such thunder – and to those who had such kind words to share:
