Eglin Fisher House Supports Month of the Military Child April 2019

In partnership with Eglin’s School Liaison Officer, Ms. Elaine LaJeunesse, a special edition of our coloring book, “Our Story of How Fisher House of the Emerald Coast came to Eglin AFB” will be shared with 750 students during the month of April.  The book focuses on education in the areas of history, art, literacy and awareness of resources for our military families. We also hope to engage the community with our nation’s defenders and their loved ones, helping to relationships and deepen bonds for better understanding of how best to support these amazing heroes.  The book is made possible with the help of 35 plus sponsors who support the Fisher House Helping Heroes Gala annually, along with our printing partner, Image Printing and Digital Services.  A copy of the book can be found here. Purple Up!

PS, we think the book is awesome, features our Squirrel named Shalimar, with her friend Stephen the Hawk.  Yes, squirrels and hawks have learned to work together peacefully to bless our families!
