  2. Season’s Greetings to You All, and with the first snow just setting in, to all the young hearts in loved of the great outdoors!
    It is to be reminded that there are scholarships and funds created because, by and for extraordinary people like for example: Patrol Officer Sean A. Collier. Early this year a new Memorial Fund was established in his honor [http://boston.cbslocal.com/2017/01/19/sean-collier-memorial-fund-police-academy/] and a scholarship in his memory, at Salem State University, is close to reaching the endowment level.
    May You All have a Safe and Beautiful Holiday Season, a Safe and Happy New Year, and of course Congratulations for those two highlighted in this article: the Students of Watertown!
