On October 25th, 2017, local Modern Woodmen of America members will honor local resident Richard H Jandreau Jr as a hometown hero.
Jandreau will be recognized through Modern Woodmen’s Hometown Hero Program for his many years of community service. Richard served briefly with the Oakland Police Department, has been the Fire Chief in Sidney Maine for over 15 years, and is in his 19th year with the RSU 18 Student Transportation Division. Jandreau is also an EMT, a Nationally Certified Fire Fighter Instructor, and much more. He has also run a successful D.J. business for over 30 years.
As part of the Hometown Hero Program, members of the Augusta, Maine, Modern Woodmen Chapter will present Jandreau with a certificate and a $100.00 award grant to be donated to the charitable organization of his choice.
“The Hometown Hero Program allows us to thank those who give back to the community while encouraging others to volunteer,” says Stacey Linehan, local Modern Woodmen volunteer leader.
The event will take place at ‘The World Famous’ Red Barn Restaurant, 455 Riverside Drive, Augusta, Maine, beginning at 4:00 pm, (presentation begins at 5:15 pm).
