In taking a stroll during my lunch break over to the park on the side of the State House, it struck me to take a look at whether Wellesley might be represented at the Massachusetts Fallen Firefighters Memorial. Sure enough, I did make a couple of Wellesley sightings.
The memorial’s Ring of Honor features bricks dedicated to firefighters who died in the line of duty, but also recognizes firefighters whose families have purchased bricks for them via a donation to the Fallen Firefighters Memorial Foundation. I spotted bricks for Wellesley Firefighters Local 1795 and Lt. Ed Conlon.
Each year a ceremony is held to honor additions to the Ring of Honor.
