30 ways to celebrate 30th anniversary

PECMhospitalfoundationThe Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. The foundation invites County residents to join in the celebration by creating a list of 30 fundraising ideas.  The foundation members ask participants to let them know how you are celebrating and send photographs they can share.
