There are two new stone benches and a POW/MIA memorial in St. Mary's Cemetery due to the work of Foxboro High School student and Eagle Scout candidate Sam Belanger.

Belanger raised $5,000 and working with John Ricker from Morse and Beggs Monument Company, he designed and installed the benches and memorial.

Belanger wrote that he also recently put in a small cobblestone wall around the area of the memorial and planted red, white and blue flowers in preparation for Memorial Day.

"This memorial is especially important and was only possible due to the strong support from various local organizations and individuals through donations and volunteering," he said.
