Massachusetts Fallen Firefighters Memorial Annual Ceremony

State House Ceremony

On 9/11, some of our members attended the Massachusetts Fallen Firefighters Memorial annual ceremony at the State House.  

Not only were they there to pay tribute to the men and women who died on that horrible day, but also to represent Needham as one of our own was added to the Ring of Honor.  Thomas Welch was being honored at those 9/11 services.  Firefighter Welch was the union president of Local 1706 for over 20 years. 
He also served as the District 2 Vice President for the Professional Fire Fighters of Massachusetts (PFFM),  served on the Joint Labor-Management Committee and Needham Town Retirement Board.  

An honor well deserved.
