NORTH GRAFTON, MA – The Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Women’s Success Network is proud to support a service event at Community Harvest Project (CHP) in memoriam of our friend and colleague Maria Remillard. This event will be held on the crisp Fall morning of Saturday, September 23rd, at the cultivating Community Harvest Project (CHP), 37 Wheeler Road, North Grafton. This enlightening community service event will begin at 8:00am for a continental style breakfast, with networking, and shared information about Women’s Health, and then from 9:00am to 12:00pm we will crop and harvest produce from the gardens. Pre-registration is required, and is open to Members and Future Members of the Chamber.
Maria passed away from ovarian cancer in February of 2023. September marks the beginning of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, a time to support current patients and educate the general public on ovarian cancer, which affects just under 20,000 American women this year alone. Maria was very passionate about the CHP and its commitment towards hunger relief so we would like to honor her as we roll up our sleeves, and volunteer our time to the community.
“Please join us as we celebrate and honor the life and commitment of our dear friend Maria and support her love for giving back to the community. This event is also the perfect opportunity to bring to light and share information about the importance of Women’s Health.” said BVCC President & CEO, Jeannie Hebert.
