Celebration of Life for Terry Carpenter on Saturday, August 14, 2021 from 2:00-4:00pm.
We will be doing a classic car, truck, jeep, motorcycle, etc. cruise in for those who want to participate. Terry had MANY classic cars himself so we felt this would be a great way to help honor his love for that. We will also be honoring his many years that he spent with the Colon Fire & Rescue Team.
The event will be held at the Colon Community Fire & Rescue Barn and snacks will be provided. Please join us for this Celebration and Memorial for Terry!
Please feel free to contact Tera Yesh, Kendra Pierce or Marilyn Carpenter with any questions.
