On June 11, 2011, members from New England Pest Management Association, joined by other groups, gathered at the home of NEPMA member and past president Galvin Murphy to enjoy a BBQ and send care packages to our deployed troops.

The rain that day may have kept some people from being there but the pest management professionals from NEPMA arrived with arms full of donations and then went to work getting the packages put together and ready for mailing. Hundred of boxes were mailed to our troops containing anything from snack foods to socks and foot powder and lap top computers with DVDs. A great day was had by all who attended.
