MERRIMAC — Police Chief Eric Shears and Fire Chief Larry Fisher are pleased to announce that Wally the Green Monster, the official mascot of the Boston Red Sox, will be paying a visit to town — along with the 2018 World Series trophy — later this month.
Sunday, April 21, from 2:30-5 p.m.
Merrimac Police and Fire Station, 16 East Main St.
The Merrimac Santa Committee, Merrimac Police Association, Merrimac Fire Department Hose Company 1 and the Merrimac Fire Couplings will be welcoming Wally on April 21. Residents will have a chance to meet the mascot and have their photo taken with both Wally and the 2018 World Series trophy.
There is no cost to attend the event, and photos will be taken on-site and distributed later to attendees.
“We’re very excited to have Wally and the World Series trophy right here in Merrimac for everyone in our community to see up close,” Chief Shears said. “I want to thank our entire community for their continued support of our town’s public safety agencies and the Santa Committee.”
“This will be a great way for families to spend a Sunday afternoon and create a lasting memory, and I hope everyone takes advantage of this unique opportunity,” Chief Fisher added.
“This event is the result of a concerted effort by so many in our community, and I want to thank them all for making this possible and creating a one-of-a-kind celebration for our families,” added Santa Committee member Tom Jordan.
