“I think this is a truly wonderful idea for the men and women of the Chappaqua Volunteer Ambulance Corps and Millwood Fire Departments are dedicated public servants who keep us safe every day. They are worthy of our praise and support for their extraordinary service.”
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Grateful Girl Scouts from Chappaqua troop 1029 presented “Thank a First Responder Day” details at Town Hall this week. The girls’ goal? To engage the New Castle community in recognizing the dedication and hard work of the Chappaqua and Millwood Volunteer Fire departments and the Chappaqua Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
Members of the town board and the supervisor applauded the girls for their efforts.
Per the excerpt above, the girls also proudly noted that Hillary Clinton had sent their troop a letter of support for the project.
Clinton continued with: “As you continue preparing for our community to come together and express our appreciation this coming May, please know that I am cheering you on. As a former Girl Scout myself, I am proud to know that the spirit of service and community endures. Keep up the great work!”
Tuesday, May 27 (the Tuesday after Memorial Day) is the special day, and all residents are invited to stop in to say “thank you,” bring some cookies or snacks, and let first responders know how grateful the community is for their service.
The locations are: Chappaqua Fire Department (491 King Street), Millwood Fire Department (60 Millwood Road), and Chappaqua Ambulance Corps (233 North Greeley Avenue).
