Dear Editor:Nashoba Publishing
The family of Douglas Sullivan of Townsend is looking for anyone who has information about the theft of our statue of St. Francis from the Hillside cemetery on Highland Street. The theft took place within the last few weeks. This statue has great emotional value to us as it was given to Douglas by his grandfather when he was a small child.
The statue depicts St. Francis when he was a little boy. It is approximately 20 inches tall, made of cement, and weighs 25 to 30 pounds. Anyone with information may call us at our home at (978) 597-5184 or the Townsend police department at (978) 597-2313.
