Over the course of my short but dramatic career in the Heating plus Air Conditioning industry, I suppose I have gotten to know South Bend pretty well; This is a town where it is easy to settle down and make friends, because most people is so friendly; As a history buff, I love to ask questions to my customers, especially the older ones, and now that I own my own supplier I have people who handle the work for me; Sometimes I go on a apartment call for a boiler repair and let my guys do all the work while I just chat with the buyer and ask questions about their history in South Bend.
There are a lot of resources that chronicle the past of the South Bend area, although I like hearing the stories that aren’t in the history books… Were you aware of the incident in which Notre Dame students fought back against the KKK and their incursion into South Bend? It makes me proud to be a South Bend resident, I tell you that. When the KKK threatened the good people of South Bend, the mostly-Catholic student body started to fight back, unmasking the evil racist guys and making a large public commotion. Notre Dame may be great at hobbys, but their history of fighting for justice in South Bend is what I easily appreciate. At one of my latest Heating plus Air Conditioning repair jobs I spoke to an aged man who said he was there at the time, and gave me keen insight into one of South Bend’s most brilliant and historical moments.
