Letter: 'Thank You' from the Jessica Locke Firefighters Fund

Recognition for volunteers who helped cook and deliver dinners to firefighters on Sept. 11.

The Jessica Locke Firefighters Fund would like to express our deep appreciation to the Newton residents and firefighters who, on Sept. 11, volunteered to cook and deliver dinners to all the firehouses and police stations of Newton, Belmont, and Watertown: Linda McLaughlin, Helen Ventouris, Christine Schafer, Laurie Gershkowitz, Lt. Michael Murphy, FF. Tom Lopez, and Lt. Rich Toli.

In addition, we are very grateful to Joe Prestejohn of Cabot's Ice Cream, who provided beautiful desserts for the 14 stations. The legacy of unity and service that took place after September 11, 2001 continues on through the efforts of these volunteers, and says to all of our first responders, "We will never forget."
