Bridge naming done without notification

To the editor:

I am a descendant of Francis Plumer, who landed at the First Settler Landing Site on the Parker River in Newbury.

I believe people are missing the point that I think Alfred Thurlow was trying to make about the dedication of this bridge. Apparently no town official or Newbury resident knew about or were present for this dedication. I guess the state of Massachusetts didn’t think the little town of Newbury, where a bridge over the Park River has been located since the year 1651, deserved a phone call. It is my opinion they should have been called.

William Plummer Sr.
