Happy “30th” birthday to Harry Brett…from six feet away, that is

BRAINTREE — It seems like everyone including Santa Claus turned out the other day to celebrate Harry Brett’s “30th” birthday party. The surprise — and he was surprised — was set up and organized by Harry’s daughters Mary Ellen and Margaret.

A parade of cars made its way (slowly) by the Brett house in Braintree as a very happy Harry Brett and his wife, Lucille, waved as each car passed by. The phalanx was led by a Braintree Police cruiser with special guest Santa Claus. (We’re told that our own Jim Fagan had insider info on where the jolly old toymaker was spending his time in social isolation…) The cars were filled with Harry and Lucille’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Happy birthday, Harry!
