March 2021 Purple Ribbons for Wellness Week
The Portsmouth Garden Club,
like organizations in our community,
in Wellness Week, February 28 to March 6. The project was started a few years ago by Chris Herron,
a Durfee High School, Fall River basketball star, who was recruited by the Boston Celtics.
Unfortunately his drug addiction led to his dismissal from the team. Now drug free Chris wants
to help prevent young people from abusing drugs. A Portsmouth resident, he saw his son become a basketball star at Portsmouth High. Our club,
like the other area groups and businesses is supporting his goal.
