A special thanks to a Waltham business who provided Christmas dinners for local police officers and firefighters.
Tuesday, January 1
To the Editor: On Christmas Day, the owners of NY Pie of Waltham spent their morning cooking up and delivering delicious ham dinners for all the firehouses in Newton and Waltham, as well as the police departments. Their only motivation was to express their appreciation for the service of our first responders. It was heartfelt and thoughtful, and made this Christmas Day far more special to all those who took part. Thank you NY Pie! --Jessica Locke Executive Director, Jessica Locke Firefighters Fund

Michael Murphy, FF. Tom Lopez, and Lt. Rich Toli. In addition, we are very grateful to Joe Prestejohn of Cabot's Ice Cream, who provided beautiful desserts for the 14 stations. The legacy of unity and service that took place after September 11, 2001 continues on through the efforts of these volunteers, and says to all of our first responders, "We will never forget."
