First annual Dudley Police Department Car Show

Sep 21, 2021 12:44PM ● By Chuck Tashjian
The first annual Dudley Police Department Car Show was held on Sunday, September 12, at Shepherd Hill Regional High School. 
Dudley Police Officers Keith Remillard and Luis Pacheco, along with their family members, coordinated this event. Assistance was also provided by Dudley Police School Resource Officer Philip Megas. 
Over $6,000 was raised during this event and the proceeds will be donated to the family of fallen Worcester Police Officer Emmanuel Familia who died in the line of duty while attempting to save a teenager from drowning this past June 4. 
The Dudley Police Department wishes to thank the Dudley Charlton Regional School District Superintendent Steven Lamarche, Principal William Chapman, and the staff at Shepherd Hill Regional High School for the use of the facility. 
The Department would also like to recognize the generous sponsors of this event, Rampco Construction and Dunkin Donuts of Dudley. 
Special thanks also go out to Best Auto Body, UniBank, and EGC Incorporated of Dudley for their generous donations. 
A great deal of gratitude also is extended to DJ Paul Gaulin for donating his time and equipment for the day and adding a tremendous lift to this event. 
Of course, a program like this would not be possible without the participation of drivers and their vehicles. Between 80 and 90 cars, trucks, and other vehicles were on display. Prizes were awarded to several winners. The weather was excellent, and this day was a tremendous success. 
Expect the second annual event to take place in 2022.”
