Project 351 celebrates 10 years of student participation in their communities

BOSTON — More than 500 attendees packed Faneuil Hall for the 10th annual “Launch Day,” when Eighth Grade students from each of the 351 cities and towns in the state set out to volunteer for service projects in their communities.

WBZ-TV anchor Lisa Hughes served as the day’s emcee and the CBS Boston channel had a complete report that you can view here.

Others on hand to support the young people were Governor Charlie Baker and his wife, Lauren, and Patriots player Devin McCourty, who addressed those gathered in the historic hall.

As part of the annual gathering, Project 351 also honored those who have given back to the state, including our own Bill Brett, who was surprised when his image was up on the screen.
