A New Link In An Old Post

Someone Googling "Jeremiah Hurley" found an old post I wrote and put in a link to this story.

I thought it was worthy of it's own post. Thanks "Anonymous"

Westfield trooper raises funds for school and kids of fallen cops
The two were among six teams to play in the 3rd Annual Jeremiah Hurley Jr. Wiffle Ball Tournament at Westfield’s Fenway Park, a quarter-scale replica of the iconic Boston venue built in the backyard of Massachusetts State Trooper Christopher Dolan.

Proceeds from the event go jointly to benefit Westfield’s Community Christian School and to scholarships of children of fallen police officers from Massachusetts. Dolan and other organizers said they typically raise $8,000 between $500 team fees, raffles and other boosters during the event.

Hurley, Dolan’s uncle, was a Boston police detective killed in 1991 when a homemade bomb went off Roslindale. There are 28 plaques on the side of Dolan’s shed on the property off Western Avenue, including names of local and state police and federal agents."

Good job Trooper Dolan and all those involved.
