Raising funds for a good cause

Ian Fairclough, 16-year employee at the Navy Lodge onboard NAS Patuxent River and vice-chairman of the St. Marys County Commission for the Disabled, celebrated his birthday in July by launching a fundraising effort on behalf of St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital via his Facebook page. Initially hoping to raise $200, he was thrilled to announce a total of $515 was raised instead. Throughout his life, Fairclough has been an advocate for individuals with challenges, focusing primarily on his community and state.
