We want start off by giving special thanks to Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters, Tidewater Society who held a golf tournament on June 3rd.  We appreciate everything you all do for us!

On June 4th, staff members headed out to Bide-A-Wee Golf Course in Portsmouth in support of the Annual Brass and Wheel Golf Tournament hosted by the Naval Civilian Manager’s Association.  The weather was perfect a good time was had by all.  Once again, we are honored to have been the beneficiary of all your efforts!  You all definitely know how to put on a great tournament.  We want to extend congratulations to Larry and all the Association members who received the top honor this year at their national convention!

Then on June 9th we spent the day with our dear friends of LPI Technical Services in support of their Annual Golf Tournament!  Although it was a bit cloudy with a few moments of light rain; the tournament continued and LPI raised a lot of money for Edmarc!  Can’t wait till next year!

Nesta Woods and dadThis Father’s Day weekend was another wonderful time.  The Yorktown Rotary hosted and sponsored what we all know as the mini vacation for some special families with an array of exciting activities over the course of the weekend.  This year was no exception.  They kicked it off with a special meet and greet picnic Friday evening; stayed at the Duke of York Hotel, went fishing, had a pizza party for the kids and a night out for the adults, and concluded the weekend with some R/R poolside.  A huge thank you to all of the Rotarians who made this a weekend to remember.

Blue skies and a light breeze was the backdrop for the Annual Edmarc Picnic on June 22nd. Once again our dear friends of the Kiwanis Club of Norfolk hosted the picnic at Bayville Farms in Virginia Beach!  It was highly attended by the children and their families, staff and volunteers.   Kiwanis Club Members cooked up some yummy hamburgers and hot dogs with all the fixings.  Families brought special treats to share.  We even had a bounce house, two clowns, a face painter, a musician, and tons of games!  Everyone had an AMAZING time!  Thanks Norfolk Kiwanis for making this a memorable event.Victoria Ali and Family
