New Van Takes FCMC Residents Fishing


FCMC Long-Term Care residents and MSA volunteers fish along the bank in the shade. FCMC LTC residents got to ride in the comfort of a new air-conditioned van for the 26th annual fishing trip thanks to the generosity of the community that raised the much-needed funds to provide the van for such outings.

FCMC LTC residents got to ride in the comfort of a new air-conditioned van for the 26th annual fishing trip thanks to the generosity of the community that raised the much-needed funds to provide the van for such outings. Nearly 20 residents of Fulton County Medical Center Long-Term Care recently went on their annual fishing trip to the Mercersburg Sportsmen’s Association. Every resident caught their limit with help from MSA volunteers. After catching fish for the evening meal, residents enjoyed grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch. They also took pleasure in eating fresh watermelon and the ever-popular Mercersburg specialty, Milky Way ice cream. The staff at FCMC would truly like to thank the volunteers from MSA who helped the residents catch and clean the fish. This marks the 26th fishing event, and everyone is already looking forward to next year’s outing.
