Marlborough–The wives of the Massachusetts State Police Officers are campaigning to cover the entire state of Massachusetts in blue ribbons to support law enforcement officers and their families. This week, Marlborough joins a number of other communities in posting the blue ribbons.
“We are proud to show our support for the Mass. State Police Wives who are organizing this campaign. We are proud of our public safety personnel in Marlborough; they do a great job keeping the city safe every day,” said Mayor Arthur Vigeant.
“Each of the 400 wives will be wrapping trees and poles in visible locations in each of the 351 towns and cities across the state, and we are looking for volunteers to help out,” said Molly Hanchett who resides in Marlborough and will be covering Marlborough, Hopkinton and Sudbury. Hanchett’s husband, Ken, is a state trooper.
The ribbons will be placed on streetlights on Main Street and utility poles around the City.
Over 400 Massachusetts State Police wives are working together to accomplish this mission and they are seeking assistance from all local towns and cities to cover the state in blue.
Donations for supplies can be mailed to MSP Wives c/o Kimberly Watson, 186 Pierce Road, Townsend, MA 01469.
