It was a small gesture, but a meaningful one for Wilmington selectmen.
During Tuesday night’s meeting all board members and Town Manager Jeff Hull sported pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“I lost a mother at a young age to breast cancer,” said board member Michael McCoy. “It’s something that has touched everyone in this room in one way or another.”
It isn’t the only time board members have coordinated outfits for a cause. Earlier this year selectmen wore blue for autism awareness.
Judy O’Connell echoed McCoy’s sentiments and said she was glad the board could play a small part in breast cancer awareness.
“I know all of us have been impacted by this insidious disease,” said O’Connell. “I’ve personally lost people from the disease, and people take up a battle daily to earn another birthday. It’s fitting that we all wore pink tonight, and hopefully in years to come we can do something to fight this disease.”
