To the Editor,

The local Cub Scout Pack 461 will be having the second annual Pinewood Derby, in memory of Mary and Matthew Law, on Saturday, March 29, at10 am, at the Twin Valley High School.

The event is held as a memorial to Mary Law and her 8-year-old son Matthew, who tragically died in a car crash on Route 9 in Chesterfield, NH, on New Year’s Day 1987.

Mary was editor of the Valley News at the time, and Matthew was a student at Deerfield Valley Elementary School. Both were active in the Cub Scout pack in the mid-1980s, and a trust was set up in their honor.

The Cub Scouts still regularly benefit from that trust’s funds. For more information contact me at (802) 464-7487 or johnlazelle@gmail.com.
