Snapshots From Watertown Manhunt Wanted for Calendar

The events of April 19 will be hard for Watertown residents to forget, with the streets being patrolled by police in armored vehicles searching house to house for the Boston Marathon Bombing suspect. 

Some people snapped some photos that day and the Watertown Police Foundation is collecting them to consider for a calendar they will make to raise money for their mission of helping with the recovery and support of Watertown residents.

Submissions will be accepted through Sept. 30, and can be sent in through the foundation website - click here for information.

The foundation has raised about $100,000 so far this year, according to a report in the Boston Globe. The foundation raised money selling "Watertown Strong" T-shirts and they also received a big boost from a $25,000 donation from Frank McCourt.

Money has gone toward projects and groups including the Watertown Boys and Girls Club and the middle school's chorus, as well as for new flags for the Watertown police's honor guard, according to a statement from the foundation. Money is also expected to help the Police Department pay for training. 

Calendars will sell for about $10, and customers can pre-order them online
