Friends of MICHAEL FORCIER will be holding a Benefit to help with the expenses associated with his battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).
Michael was diagnosed with ALS in April 2012 and was forced to close his law office due to the progression of the disease. The disease has affected Michael's ability to speak and also his ability to swallow. In January of this year, he had a feeding tube inserted to assist him in getting the nutrition he needs to maintain his weight.
Over the past eight years, Michael has been actively involved in many organizations in our community, serving on numerous boards and also as a volunteer. Mike was the Exalted Ruler for the Watertown Elks Lodge during 2012-2013. He will continue to stay active and contribute to the community as long as he is able.
The benefit will be June 2nd 2013 from 12-6pm at the Watertown Elks Lodge #496 728 Bradley Street Watertown NY 13601. We will be having a ½ chicken bar-b-que with tossed salad, macaroni salad, roll ($10.00/ea) silent auction, live music, raffles, 50/50 and lots of fun.
A Golf Tournament, Cash donations and Silent Auction items are also being planned. Please contact one of the listed contact people to participate in one of these items. Thank you for your generosity and support.
