St. John’s To Host “Thank You” For Town Volunteers On Sunday On The Green
St. John’s in Pine Meadow will be hosting a ‘Community Thank You’ for all town firemen, ambulance, police, commissions and board volunteers tomorrow, Sunday, June 10th from 1:00 p.m.-4:00p.m. on the Pine Meadow Green. There will be food, music and games for children.
Invitations have gone out to all volunteers and their families. If you are a town volunteer and didn’t receive an invitation or forgot to RSVP, you are still welcome to attend. “There’s going to be plenty of food and the weather is supposed to be really nice,” Lou Martocchio, one of the organizers, told us during a phone call today.
All that’s needed to make it a perfect party is for you, our town volunteers, to attend. See you tomorrow on the Green in Pine Meadow for the party!

Many Thanks: to Lucie Martocchio for forwarding this information to us.
