On April 8th the Honorable Order of the Blue Goose, Tidewater Puddle held there Annual Blue Goose Masters Tournament! We would like to thank Butch Beckman and everyone who made this event possible! It was a beautiful day at Sleep Hole Golf Course and at the end of the day; Edmarc was presented with a check for almost $3,000! We truly appreciate the Blue Goose and their continued support over the years!
On April 9th the Portsmouth Police Department did a Done in A Day Project on our grounds. With the help of sponsors in our Community, they were able to plant flowers, mulch our gardens, weed, and cut the grass! It was an eventful day and we are truly blessed to have such fine men and women not only protecting us but volunteering their time to make a change in our Community.
Special thanks to the Poquoson Kiwanis, the Churchland Kiwanis, the Violet Greco Foundation, The Southeast Community Foundation, and the Western Branch Lions Club for inviting us to share the story of Edmarc during your meetings this month!
Congratulations to one of our Edmarc Foundation Trustees who was awarded the YWCA Women of Distinction Award! Way to go Charity!
We need to give a very special shout out to the ladies of the Portsmouth Service League’s 2016 Provisional class. These lovely ladies gave our child care/child therapy room a beautiful makeover! We couldn’t be more thankful! Not only is it absolutely gorgeous but they also filled it with some much needed therapy tools. Thank you for truly making a difference in the lives of children in Hampton Roads!
This month we celebrated Administrative Professionals Day! We just want to thank Maggie, Dorothy, and Shantel for their dedication to our organization!
This month we also celebrated Volunteer Appreciation Week! We have the BEST volunteers in the World! These folks could choose to go anywhere and volunteer their time but, they choose Edmarc. We are truly blessed and honored to know them. Without their help, we would not be able to provide the care our Edmarc families so desperately need! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! YOU ALL ROCK!!!!!
