The Nov. 25 China selectmen’s meeting opened with a proclamation by Town Manager Dennis Heath marking the day as “David Addis Herard Day” in honor of the late head of China Rescue. The manager summarized Herard’s many services to his town and his country and presented a certificate to his daughter, Kate Herard, who wiped away tears as she and others agreed her father would have enlivened the serious moment with a witty remark.
