On Wednesday afternoon, the Boys and Girls Club gave back to the Ingrams with the unveiling of a bronze plaque on a rock in a memorial garden in front of the club.
“This beautiful garden is a testament to the love the community feels for the Ingrams,” said club director of development Denise Dolloff.
Boys and Girls Club board president Patrick Donovan said that spirit of giving has been felt by more than just his organization.
Although Ingram has given to a number of causes, Morse said his greatest pride has always been his work in helping children through the Salem Boys and Girls Club.
“It’s wonderful,” he said. “Beautiful.”
While many people wanted to talk to Ingram following the ceremony, he gave the most time greeting and talking to a long line of children from the club who walked by to shake his hand.
