The Person of the Year Award
Honoring Normand Racicot & The Fallon Family
On May 8th , over 250 people gathered at Lombardo’s to honor Normand Racicot and The Fallon Family for their long-standing generous spirit and consistent support. The event raised over $100,000 for The Arc of the South Shore. The Racicot family utilized the support of The Arc’s Early Intervention Program and also served on the Early Intervention Parent Advisory Committee. Norm has sat on The Arc Board of Directors for more than twelve years and is currently serving as the President for his second term, as well as serving Co-Chair for the Annual Louis Bailey Golf Tournament. Additionally, Fallon Ambulance Service not only applies First Aid and CPR training to Arc employees, but also employs four individuals and a job coach, through The Arc’s employment program, where they help maintain one of the ambulance bays in Weymouth.
