OPINION: “Hingham stands by those who serve. Hingham supports the Chesna Family. “

August 25, 2020 Submitted by Diane DeNapoli

Dear Friends,

As with many others, the narrative of some members of the Hingham community not standing with law enforcement has been very disturbing to me.

This led me to think of a way we as a community could show our support for the Chesna Family.  I reached out to Sgt. Chesna's mother to extend my sympathy and asked her what I could do to show my support for her son.  She graciously thanked me and said a donation to Michael's Scholarship Fund would be best.

Please help me turn this narrative around!  Hingham stands by those who serve.  Hingham supports the Chesna Family. Please share with others in Hingham who might like to donate to a very worthy cause.

Checks may be sent to 16 Gardner St., Hingham, MA 02043, with "Michael Chesna Memorial Fund" written in the memo line.

I greatly appreciate your help in reaching our stated goal.

Diane DeNapoli
