Town of Wilmington dedicates Flagpole in memory of 9/11 First Responders and Miltary Personnel

Remembering and honoring our First Responders and our Military Personnel that have been fighting the War on Terror is important, and it was the focus of an inspiring flag pole dedication at Silver Lake in Wilmington on Saturday, September 14.


Organized by Veterans Service Officer Lou Cimaglia, the event was an opportunity to join with the Police and Fire Departments, veterans organizations and members of the Board of Selectmen to say thank you. I was honored to participate,  along with Representative Robertson and Greg Bendel, who spoke on behalf of the Selectmen.


The dedication also gave us the opportunity to thank Rapiscan Systems of Andover, formerly Morpho Detections of Wilmington for its generous donation of the pole and its installation.
