Black Pearl Pipes & Drums
The Black Pearl Pipes and Drums was established in 2006 by Captain Mike Nugent and Fireman Timothy Gleason. The group is composed entirely of firemen, active or retired, from the entire South Florida area. The name Black Pearl was chosen since no one single Fire Department is responsible for the band. They also did not want to leave anyone out. Thus, their uniforms carry the member’s department patch on the left sleeve and the band patch on the right sleeve.
A non-profit 501-C corporation, the Black Pearl Pipes and Drums play academy graduations, department ceremonies, funerals and memorials, as well as public events. Self-sponsored, the group sustains itself through donations and sales of band memorabilia.
You may contact the group or purchase band memorabilia via their website at http://www.blackpearlpipesanddrums.com

Labor Assistance Professionals
Labor Assistance Professionals (LAP) was established in 1990 to promote the development of peer-based Member Assistance Programs (MAPs) within the labor movement. Until the 1970s, most substance abuse programs in the US were informal, community based, voluntary self-help groups such as AA.
LAP is dedicated to obtaining comprehensive alcohol and drug treatment and mental health services for our members at a reasonable and fair price. In addition, we advocate for member assistance program development within labor, and for recognition of the key role labor plays from the field’s professional organizations and treatment providers.
