NEW & UPCOMING EVENTS
I REMEMBER MAMA (Our 24th Year!)
Our heartfelt thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for their tremendous support for the I REMEMBER MAMA event on Mother’s Day weekend. We had nine fire departments participating this year as well as volunteers from the National League of Charities and many others. We are especially grateful to ROCKET FARMS for their generosity in providing over 1,200 orchids for the event. The flowers brought smiles to senior women living in 70 long-term care facilities throughout the county. The media was there to capture the event as it unfolds.
