Calendar Of Heroes To Help Support Firemen’s Memorial
GRAYLING, Michigan – Blarney Stone Broadcasting and Michigan’s Firemen’s Memorial Festival are partnering to produce the “Real Firefighters of Central/Northern Michigan” 2017 Calendar.
Each month a firefighter from a different community in Northern Michigan will be featured. Nominations will be accepted on-line at q100-fm.com and at various Q100.3 events through Oct. 2. The 12 winners, each from a different community, will be determined based on their number of nominations.
All net profits from the sale of the calendar will go to Michigan’s Firemen’s Memorial Festival. The Michigan’s Firemen’s Memorial Festival is planning to create a fund to support the families of fallen Michigan Fire Fighters.
“We are immensely proud of this new partnership that underscores our deepest gratitude to the heroic first-responders who serve our community,” said Sheryl Coyne, President and CEO of Blarney Stone Broadcasting. “We’re so honored to be working with the organizers of the Firemen’s Memorial Festival, who work so tirelessly year-around to bring this remarkable, signature event that draws thousands of visitors each year to our region.”
