The Toys for Tikes season kicked off on Sunday, November 15th with the Annual Billiard Tournament held at the Pool Factory in Manchester. Hundreds of new toys, two new bicycles as well as a very generous monetary donation were made by the 85 people participating in the event.
Their participation began in 2009 as a result of our help to a single mom with four children and our members showing up on toy night to help make a Christmas for her children that wouldn't have existed without us. The tournament has grown significantly over the years! Thousands of toys and over $8,000 donated to date. Our thanks are given to Tracy and Bryan Palacio, Lisa Healey and Sharon Fargo for continuing to make the Vernon Volunteer Firefighters Assoc. Toys for Tikes Drive a success.
To the members of the department, THIS is why we are there to help so many families every year! Get ready for another exciting season!
