Truckin’ to the Music to Make a Return in 2019
Truckin' to the Music is making it's return to Franklin Street this summer! Sunday, June 2nd, you'll be able to enjoy a bite to eat from the local food trucks. Grab an ice cold craft beer from the local breweries while enjoying local live music. There will even be inflatables to keep the kids entertained as well. It is completely free to attend this family friendly event and a portion of the sales from the food and beverage sales will be donated to Chemo Buddies. The Chemo Buddies mission is to provide:
a group of compassionate volunteers who serve cancer patients while they are in the treatment room receiving chemotherapy. Chemo is time consuming — it can take up to 8 hours — and this leaves many patients without their normal support person or family. The Chemo Buddies volunteers serve as companions for patients, and help with snacks, books, games, blankets and the kind of hospitality you would hope to receive if you were visiting someone's home. Our goal is to make chemo a more comfortable and life giving experience physically, mentally and spiritually...
...Chemo Buddies provide services to the people who are actively fighting cancer right now. Buddies walk with people in the moment, delivering immediate help and comfort to patients and their family members as they fight against this life threatening illness in the treatment room. We are the only volunteer organization that is allowed inside the treatment room to help with patient care. We treasure our relationships with our patients and our healthcare team. We exist because we believe, "No one should ever have to go through chemo alone."
The day's festivities will take place on the lawn of the west branch library and will begin at 10am with live music starting at noon. To learn more about Truckin' to the Music, visit their official Facebook Page.
