Nominate a special volunteer for the Nona Emerson Award

Mrs. Nona Emerson is a long time friend of FCM and beloved wife of WWII Veteran Paul Emerson, US Marine. Nona spent nearly every day with her husband at our facility until his passing in February 2015. Since then Nona has continued to take public transport from her home in Bartonville three times a week to our facility to spend afternoons. During her visits, Nona spends time with the residents, helps with events, and makes sure to welcome each Veteran that admits to our facility personally. Nona is a constant reminder of the importance of our mission to honor and care for our US Veterans. Our administration has developed this annual award in Nona’s honor to recognize her, and all others who share our passion. Please join us in our effort to honor them.
