Photo of the Week: Burlington Students Honor Local Heroes

By: Rich Hosford


Another week, another photo to highlight.


This week’s photo shows local heroes meeting with Burlington students. It is from Burlington Public Schools and shows a gathering at Pine Glen Elementary called Heroes Assembly where the school and its students recognize all of Burlington’s local heroes in the Burlington Police and Fire Departments. During the ceremony, Pine Glen students read letters of thanks to the members of the police and fire departments who were in attendance. They also presented Chief Kent (pictured here talking to students) and Chief Patterson with letters from their classmates to share back at the stations with members of their department who could not be present. The students also recognized Pine Glen graduate and pilot Thomas McGuinness who was lost on September 11.


Great to see so many young Burlington residents learning the importance of service to a community and country. 

We’d like to see your photos. They could be of something you see around town, the weather outside your own door or even photos of your family members and pets. Whatever you think is interesting and would like to share.
