FOR OUR FALLEN.

Branding + Design by VAST.

Vast Design helped Wake and District represent who we are through a creative, strong and humble design which speaks volumes. The mark consists of the letters “F-O-F” making the shape of a shield. In the center is our checkered battenburg pattern worn by band members in our glengarry hats. The checkerboard pays tribute to the City of Chicago Police Department where one of our founding members served.


The mark represents everything Wake and District stands for, “For Our Fallen”.

 

PARTNERSHIPS.

Partnerships are formed between a number of individuals, agencies or organizations with a shared interest. There is usually an overarching purpose to work together on a range of specific objectives.  Wake & District is proud of all of our partnerships established over the years who support our mission to honor our fallen comrades and promote cultural heritage and enrich our community by providing traditional Bagpipe and Drum music.

While our supporters do include all of our family, friends and co-workers — we would like to point out just a few organizations who continue to support our aims and objectives.
