It was one year ago that famed Falmouth Road Race founder and legendary Eliot Lounge bartender Tommy Leonard passed away. Now, after a year during which many a glass was lifted in his honor, Tommy will be permanently remembered by the town he helped make famous in running circles around the globe. Today, we received the following message from TL’s good pal Russ Pelletier:
“Members of the Falmouth Walk (a TL co-founded charity) have received the support from the Town of Falmouth to install a Tribute to Tommy on Main Street in Falmouth. In addition, the crosswalk located at this beloved Quarterdeck will be renamed “Tommy Leonard Walk Way”.
The bronze plaque will acknowledge his many contributions to the Falmouth Walk, the Falmouth Road Race, and his generosity that has been passed down to many.
Our goal is to raise $6500 to cover the costs. These funds are to be kept separate from funds that have been raised by the Walk designated to local charities. If we didn’t do that, TL would be sending darts down from the heavens.
Should we raise more than the needed amount, the overage would then go to the charities that he and the Walk have supported. This is the 30th anniversary of the Falmouth Walk, and it promises to be a huge success.”
Checks should be made out to: “The Falmouth Walk – TL” and send to:
137 King Street
Falmouth, MA. 02540
