This January/February Check in for Charity is brought to us by Sue. For those of you who don’t know who Sue is, try a Yoga class! Sue’s Uncle, Peter Lavery, was a 17 year veteran of the Newington Police Department when he was fatally shot on the evening of December 30, 2004 while responding a to domestic disturbance call. He was also a Berlin resident for about 25 years.
The Peter J. Lavery Memorial Scholarship Fund, was established by Peter’s family shortly after his death to honor the ultimate sacrifice he made while serving in the line of duty as Newington Master Police Officer. The money raised is put into scholarships that are distributed annually to students enrolling in the law enforcement or criminal justice fields.
