TOM HUTTON FUNDRAISER
TH

On August 8th, 2014 Lieutenant Thomas Hutton had an unforgettable night at his retirement party. He was celebrating the end of his 42 year career as a police officer for the town of Nahant. It was an amazing night filled with support and happiness for a job well done.

Just 5 months later on January 9th, 2015, Tom slipped on a small patch of ice in his own driveway, falling and hitting his head and the back of his neck on the pavement. This injury has left Tom bedridden and having to learn how to walk and get the use of his hands back.

To learn more about how you can help speed Tom's recover please visit Tom's fundraising page,
