Redington plaque at Washington

       A plaque in honor of the late Francis Redington is scheduled to be erected this month at Washington School.
        “He did a lot of things over the last 20 to 25 years at the school,” said Tom Hendrix, a friend and fellow member of the Westside Optimists Club.
       Redington, 70, died last December. He was retired from the U.S. Army (Vietnam veteran).
        “He was always there to help us,” commented Al Shea, president of the club. He credited Redington with starting Washington School's food basket program for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
       A ceremony to announce the plaque presentation to the school was held earlier this month, which resulted in a three-minute standing ovation, Shea said.
