The Chesterfield community was shocked and saddened by the unexpected passing of Town resident Bill Jolly. Bill served as Town Moderator, Chair of the Zoning Board of Appeals, member of the Conservation Commission, Cemetery Superintendent, and on many ad-hoc committees. Bill's passing is a great loss to our community and to all who knew him. People have asked how to make donations in Bill's memory. Below are listed three ways to donate:
At the Family's Request:
Bill's family requested that contributions in Bill's name be made to either the Town of Chesterfield for Cemetery improvements or to the Congregation B'Nai Israel Tzedakah Fund. Donations for Cemetery improvements should be mailed to Town of Chesterfield PO Box 299 Chesterfield, MA 01012.
Bill Jolly Tree Fund:
Bill was a great outdoorsman and enjoyed hiking. Town resident Kessie Warlow-Harry is spearheading a campaign to plant trees in Bill's memory. She has established a fund at Florence Savings bank, The Bill Jolly Tree Fund, to accept donations in Bill's memory and hopes to plant up to three trees in Town (more if funds allow). Kessie is working with the Tree Warden and the Select Board to identify locations for the trees.
To donate to the Tree Fund fund, checks can be deposited directly into Florence Savings Bank's Bill Jolly Tree Fund - account number 198 262 3423. Checks can also be mailed to Kester Warlow-Harry PO Box 553 Chesterfield, MA 01012 and the deposit will be made for you.
