Upcoming Events

Farminging #9 Memorial Service

 It is with a heavy heart that we will not hold our traditional in-person Farmington #9 Memorial Service this year. However, we will hold a virtual Facebook Live event so that our members, the victims' families and their communities can still come together to honor those lives who were lost in this tragic event.

We will update this page with details of the event when they become available.

If you have any questions, please call the District 31 office.
