Our members were at
their most productive ever from September 9 through early December
in 2017. Please accept our deep gratitude for all that you do!
Read the four-page
summary that invites you to:
our newest volunteers
those who contributed the 'Top Ten' number of hours this season
the number of vaccination clinics at which our unit served
across the region
the wide range of festivals, classes, call-outs, and other
activities that engaged so many of our diverse members and
the kind words from our response partners and counterparts
about our contributions throughout the Upper Merrimack Valley
This season we set
a new participation record. In just over ten weeks
from 9/9 through 11/21 155 members and affiliates supported
40 events! (Last year, 154 members supported 47 events over six
months.) We also shattered our stats for a specific activity.
At this year's Yankee Doodle Homecoming Weekend on 9/16, a whopping
243 children participated in a Let's Move! activity to
combat childhood obesity. Our MRC liaison at the MA Dept. of Public
Health, Liz Foley, recently commented, "Your unit seems to run
like a well-oiled machine." Our next challenge: How can we top
this success next year?
We hope that each of
you enjoys a delightful holiday season! Thanks so much for your
hard work on behalf of the unit. Be sure to share the good news
with your friends and colleagues who might be interested in what
we do and who may even want to join us in 2018!
