Event Sponsored by Senator Ritchie Draws Volunteers
from Oswego, Jefferson and St. Lawrence County Departments
More than 200 firefighters, rescue, EMS and other emergency first responders and their families joined State Senator Patty Ritchie Tuesday, for her first-ever ‘Volunteer Appreciation Day’, held at Cape Vincent Recreation Park.
I have some photos from last week's Volunteer Appreciation Day in Cape Vincent that I would like to send to attendees. Please take a look at the images above, then click the link and tell me which picture you would like me to send to you.
Thanks again for attending Volunteer Appreciation Day.
I look forward to hosting an even bigger event next year, to say "Thank You" for all you do.
They save us from burning buildings. They are the first on the scene at motor vehicle accidents. They go searching when our loved ones go missing. They are the ones running towards danger when everyone else is running away.
Too often though, we forget to say ‘thanks’ to the more than 150,000 volunteer firefighters, EMS, search and rescue teams and other emergency responders that serve across New York State.
