Blanchfield Army Hospital - BACH - Fort Campbell KYFort Campbell, KY – Blanchfield Army Community Hospital command and staff invite the community to celebrate the Fisher House Founder’s Day with them Saturday, September 26th from 10:00am to 2:00pm at the Fort Campbell Fisher House, just off Air Assault Street inside Gate 3.

The day celebrates family, friends and community partners as they have supported Blanchfield’s Fisher House since its opening June 6th, 2006.

“We are honored to have such a supportive community here in the Fort Campbell area. Our Fisher House home is blessed with many wonderful volunteers and supporters who make it possible for Families to be together in times of medical needs,” said Fort Campbell Fisher House manager Wendy Carlston.

The event is family-oriented with live music, a dunk tank, hot dogs, a bounce house, caricatures, and an Open House.

In 1999, following the passing of the Fisher House Foundation founder Zachary Fisher, the Fisher House Foundation Board of Trustees approved a resolution to pay tribute to its founder on his birth date, September 26th. Each year, Fisher Houses nationwide and three outside the U.S. hold appropriate ceremonies designating the day as Fisher House Founder’s Day.

Today, the Army manages 17 of the 65 Fisher Houses located at major military and Veterans Administration medical centers. In honor of Zachary Fisher, all Fisher House managers and their partners will honor 25 years of support offered to military, veterans and family members in September.
