In the early part 2004 two emergency service workers united with a common goal. Tom McGovern, a police officer, and Paul DeLeo, a professional firefighter, conspired to found the very first Middlesex County Police and Fire Pipe Band. Their intention was to provide honor and remembrance for fallen brothers in service. As well, the band would participate in fundraisers for brothers in need and contribute to charitable causes. After some initial meetings and promotion of the need for membership, the band quickly grew and began to organize. Thankfully, member interest was received from all over Middlesex County.
