The Town of Leland Fire/Rescue Paramedics Are Not Only Heroes, They're JEMS!
Battalion Chief Jason Fuller, Firefighter/Paramedic Amy Burton, Firefighter/Paramedic Brian MacNamara, and Paramedic Joseph Crowder recently competed in the 2018 JEMS International Paramedic Competition in Charlotte, NC, where 27 teams went head-to-head using true to life emergency scenarios that tested their skills and abilities as paramedics. I am proud to report that your Leland team came in second in this international competition! Please join me in congratulating them on a job well done.
March is Youth Art Month and the Leland Cultural Arts Center is joining in with youth artwork featured in the gallery March 3-30. Youth Arts Day on March 24 will feature an awards ceremony for top student art in Brunswick County, a special performance by Down to Earth Aerials, and a concert by pop artist Caroline Dare.
