Concord Firefighters’ Relief Association Gives Back

The Concord Firefighters’ Relief Association, in collaboration with the Concord Carlisle Scholarship Fund, is proud to announce the award of their first scholarship to Sean P. Dalton, CCHS Class of 2011.  Sean is a fifth generation Concordian, both of whose parents also graduated from CCHS and whose grandfather served as a Concord Firefighter.  Sean will enter Plymouth State University this fall to study criminal justice, with the hope of becoming a Massachusetts State Police Officer.  While at CCHS Sean was very involved with the high school and town communities, playing on the CCHS football team all four years and participating actively in town-wide volunteer activities focused on the youth of Concord.

An old and respected organization dedicated to the support of injured and disabled members, the Concord Firefighters’ Relief Association has recently revived its commitment to also serve the community they protect.  For the past few years they have led very successful “toys for tots” drives, and on September 24 they will bring back the Concord Firefighters Ball (7 p.m. – midnight at the Concord Armory) to give the community the opportunity to join them in honoring two of their retired Captains.  This spring they created a scholarship to be awarded to a student from Concord who plans to pursue an education in the field of public safety.  Firefighter Sean P. Murphy said, “We have started this scholarship to give back to the community we are proud to protect  -- what better way than to provide educational assistance to local students hoping to continue our commitment to the public good?  We hope to permanently continue this relationship of giving back.”

For more information the Concord Firefighters Ball call 978-318-3488 (tickets available at Fire Station 1 on Walden Street) or about the Concord Carlisle Scholarship Fund go to www.ccscholarshipfund.org.
