The Jimmy Fund
Can anyone believe that the holiday season ?! I myself cannot fathom that in just a few days I will be divulging into a Thanksgiving feast followed by some Black Friday/Small Business Saturday shopping! We say here at the campground, the beginning of every camping season that it will go by in the blink of an eye, and every season it feels that statement becomes more and more true.
As I look back on the 2018 season as a whole, I could measure our success as how busy the park may have been, or by the photos or videos I see being posted of all the fun and memorable times being had at Normandy Farms. But instead I would like to take a few minutes of your time, to share the success we ALL had this year in contributing to a Massachusetts founded charity.
Those of you who camp with us frequently and participate in our wide array of activities are probably aware that some of the proceeds for select activities we host are donated to the Jimmy Fund. The Jimmy Fund is an organization that began all the way back in 1948 in Boston, MA. Now, 70 years later, The Jimmy Fund has raised millions of dollars through charities, events and co-sponsoring organizations for the research and treatment of adult and pediatric cancers all over the world.
Normandy Farms Campground has been proudly donating to The Jimmy Fund since the year 1983. Just this season, over $25,000 was raised by contributions from our guests. What is even more amazing to report, is over the course of 35 years, you as campers have raised over $350,000 and we cannot applaud, or thank you more for that! We hope the 2019 season will be even more successful than 2018 😊
