The Senate rang in the new year yesterday at the State House with the bang of a gavel and the welcoming of Boston Celtic Jaylen Brown. The state Constitution requires the Senate be in session on the first Wednesday of January - this year being the first day of the new year. Jaylen Brown's visit was entirely voluntary.
Jaylen, a guest of Senator Nick Collins, was invited to the Senate Chamber to be recognized for his significant volunteer work with local children. His Juice Foundation has raised and donated thousands of dollars to organizations, including Boys and Girls clubs to help kids develop strong foundations. His work ethic, altruistic drive, and humanitarian efforts are inspiring.
