My name is Heather McDonald, and I am a student at University of Maine at Farmington. I am a psychology major in my third year. I am very excited to be able to intern with the IFPMWG. I come from a family who wholeheartedly supports Firefighters, Police and Military. My grandfather has retired from the Air Force and retired Paramedic. He currently is the Deputy Chief of the Wilton Fire Station. My brother is a retired Army Veteran and my cousin is active in the Navy. I am so excited to be able to work with such an amazing group of people who dedicate their lives to help serve and protect America while being involved with a great cause.
Happy is a Shrine Clown and looks forward to being at the IFPMWG tournament for our athletes, family, children and spectators.
He will be at the tournament and will be sharing his amusing and funny side during the Championship Day games on Sunday to cheer on the teams an make people, you guessed it... HAPPY!
Happy will bring along a few of his friends to help spread the cheer as we raise money for a mutual cause benefiting the Shriners Hospitals for Children - Boston.
The Shriners Hospital for Children in Boston is one of the worlds leading hospitals for burns and much more.
