The Pancake Breakfast on May 31, 2015 will benefit Somers Assistant Fire Chief and Fire Association Chairmen Rick McDonald. Rick has been diagnosed with Bone Marrow Cancer, creating a challenging fight physically, mentally, and emotionally for both him and his family. On top of that, he and his family are now faced with the financial burden this disease causes. Because of this disease, Rick has been unable to work, and has been without a steady income for some time now. We are asking for your support for someone who has given countless hours to his community without asking for any compensation in return. Please find it in you to help a person who has touched so many lives and brought about so many smiles. We Thank you!!!

America's PrepareAthon! is a national camping to increase community properness of a natural disaster by working with local public safety organization and the local government. With the goals of increasing the community's awareness to the natural disasters, and having them prepare for those natural disasters, America's PrepareAthon! has influenced many families to make a disaster prepare plan in case of a natural disaster occurring. Although they are result in minimal damage here, in Connecticut (specifically the Northeastern part), flooding is what we see most of when it comes to this. If not prepared for flooding, homes can incur damage that may not be covered under your respective insurance coverage, and can cause you to temporarily move out of your home until the needed repairs have been made. The above link and graphic will show you just how important it is to be prepared for a natural disaster.
