Brothers and Sisters,
Every year in June, IAFF members from fire departments all across the Twin Cities assemble at Camp True Friends in Maple Lake, Minnesota for Fire Fighter Day.
This is a very special day at camp and not just because it is the day campers look forward to the most each year. It's special because this is your opportunity to see the product of your ongoing fundraising efforts. When the IAFF and Local 21 calls on you to support our national partnership with the MDA you ask, "where does all this money go?" This is it! Come see for yourselves. Not only will you be able to interact with all of the local kiddos and families affected by neuromuscular disease, but you will be able to witness the advancements in medicine right in front of your own eyes as a direct result of your contributions. These kids are living longer and growing stronger because the money we raise is changing the course of their lives. Kids that were never supposed to hold a baseball bat or a fishing pole are now running bases and casting lines.
Local 21 is looking to represent with our biggest turnout yet on Tuesday, June 12 and Tuesday, June 19. If you have not been before, we are strongly encouraging you to attend this year. It's only a couple weeks away so please RSVP at your earliest convenience. You can look forward to spending part of your day grilling lunch and participating in activities like zip-lining, swimming, fishing, archery, whiffle ball and so much more!
Ideally we'd like to show up with 6 - 10 members each day, so don't be shy and RSVP early!
Send your RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or text your RSVP to 612.598.7010, and please feel free to reach out with any questions. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Retirees and family members are encouraged to attend as well.
