New Tradition for Newport
Newport began a new tradition on Monday with a presentation of the Newport Service Award. The award went to Newport Police Department Captain Robert Ballou for having worked for Newport the longest of any employee.
The Plaque graces an original Elm bowl created by artist Bruce W. Burroughs made from one of the oldest trees in Newport and its last Elm. The tree was 190 years old when it was cut down for safety reasons and Bruce W. Burroughs was given some of its wood.
Town Manager O’Keefe presented the handcrafted bowl to Captain Ballou and sited the Captain’s employment in Newport first starting at the recreation department and then a police dispatcher in 1976.
O’Keefe added “In a day and age where franchise players seldom exist and few employees remain with one employer for their career Captain Bob Ballou is the standard by which all other careers at the Newport Police Department will be measured.
