"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

This Award Ceremony was the highlight of our Fourth Annual Taste of Port Richmond on Oct. 25, 2022.
EMS Richard McMahon responded to an aided case on an early May evening. While tending to the "aided" for transport to RUMC, EMS McMahon was shot once in the shoulder by the individual.
Martin Graham and Joseph Perrone, who did not know one another, heard what they thought to be a gunshot come from the direction of Forest and Oakland Avenues. They BOTH ran towards the sound and the Ambulance, there to discover mayhem taking place inside. The two subdued the man at the center of this horrific incident, secured his weapon, aided EMS worker McMahon, and called 911.
Before this day in May 2022, all three did not know one another, even though they lived in close proximity to one another. Since this incident they now share a special bond which will last FOREVER!
