Tom Wigmore nominated for Cohasset Citizen of the Year
SOMETHING WE ALL CAN AGREE ABOUT
Monday, I observed my last Memorial Day Observances in Cohasset. That makes thirty. All have been inspiring; each year is better and dearer than the previous. In most communities, participation has lessened as the number of living veterans has dwindled. Not so in Cohasset. Participation and attendance on Memorial Day has grown. The Healing Field has become iconic. Briefly, I was your Veterans’ Agent. Unlike most veterans’ agents, I did not need to organize observances for Memorial Day weekend and Veterans’ Day. Tom Wigmore coordinated those labor-intensive efforts.
Do not kid yourself, those observances do not just happen, they take year round planning and coordination. But wait, what about maintaining the flagging of the five Cohasset cemeteries and responding to requests for assistance from veterans and their families? Who makes sure those 2,000 veterans graves are flagged – Tom? Who quietly and discreetly handles numerous requests for assistance – Tom? I think Tom lives in Hingham, but does that really matter? Thank you Hingham, he belongs to us. Who should be the 2015 Cohasset Citizen of the Year? –Tom.© Copyright 2014 Tanna K, All rights Reserved. Written For: Tinytown Unleashed
