After listening to our town manager, Mr. Dunham, mention that our new town hall be given a name I sat down and researched who I feel would be best qualified to have a building named after them. I came up with two names of two warriors who not only served our country with distinction, but also served our town on the board of selectmen, as well.

The first name is Jack Jilson and the second one is Doug Dexter. Both set good examples on what being a true patriot means and then went on to further enforce their dedication to our town by serving the citizens of Sandwich. It would be hard for me to come up with just one name to call our new town hall, so I am calling for the citizens of Sandwich to support calling our new town hall the Jack Jilson and Doug Dexter Town Hall in honor and respect to both men that gave meaning to our flag of freedom we all cherish.
