Shown (L-R) are Florence's grandchildren: Jack, Cole, Leah and Sara. Behind them is MacLauglin’s son, Jason, and his wife, Christine.
A ceremony was held on April 29 to honor the late Florence MacLaughlin, who served Bellingham for 30 years as Assistant Town Clerk. A bench in her memory was dedicated and her family was on hand for the ceremony.
Town Clerk Ann Odabashian (see photo above) spoke briefly about the late Florence MacLaughlin, the bench that honors her memory and the 30 years she served Bellingham. Odabashian emphasized that “Flo loved her family and her job, and the bench is a way to remember and honor her for years of dedicated service.”
It didn’t take long at the dedication ceremony for two of Florence’s grandchildren, (left) Leah and Cole, to comfort one another on the memorial bench.
