Friends of the Blue Hills member and volunteer Jim Lafond-Lewis was honored recently by Blue Hills Bank for being a “Hometown Hero.” He received a $1,000 check for charity, and he selected Friends of the Blue Hills to receive the donation. Jim was one of 11 recipients of the award and will be featured in a 2014 calendar of Hometown Heroes offered free of charge at any Blue Hills Bank branch. Jim was chosen for this award for his work on Fowl Meadow, a sensitive wetland that has been designated as an “Area of Critical Environmental Concern” by the state of Massachusetts.
