This evening the Bayview Chamber of Commerce presented the KCPFMF a check for $500. On behalf of the over 350 first responders working in Kootenai County thank you for your generous donations the past two years. We appreciate your continued support.
Our Board of Directors and tireless volunteers are putting the finishing touches on our biggest event of the year, The 12th Annual Kootenai County Memorial Golf Tournament took place at Avondale Golf Club today.
The hashtag for the event this year was #KCPFGolf2017. Be sure to put your pics of your favorite memories of the event on your favorite social media platform; Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and tag us at @ProtectKootenai.
Weather forecast for today's Aug 4th event was mid to high 80’s. We dressed for the heat, remembered to stay hydrated throughout day, and of course, didn't forget to re-apply the SPF.
Just in time for the Golf Tournament we are pleased to announce that our T-shirt featuring the Memorial Foundation logo was ready to be worn with pride. Grab one for yourself, a friend, and/or your favorite first responder. For 20 American dollars you can show your support for your local first responders.
Details on how to purchase the t-shirt via firstrespondersmemorial.org will be posted soon. Stay tuned.
Thanks for Teeing Up.
Each year a group of Kootenai County community members gather together to show their support and raise funds for their local first responders. While this community may be modest in age and stature, their efforts, enthusiasm, love and support for their community stands tall. Evidence of their incredible contributions is the annual Pennies for Protectors fundraiser organized and hosted by Hayden Meadows Elementary School.
Each year since 2006, children from Hayden Meadows Elementary have raised funds for KootenaI County Police and Fire Memorial Foundation. To date the funds they have raised total over $5,300. This year they raised and donated $589.73. We are grateful to them for hard work as they are testament to the future generations of Kootenai County’s local ethic of giving back and getting involved in the communities we are part of.
Please join us in thanking Hayden Meadows Elementary and their students for the tremendous job they have done bringing our community closer together with their valuable contributions this year and year’s past.
