(Continued)

Laplante gave the chief a computer flash drive and key chain, a Red Sox can cooler (He’s a lifelong Yankees fan) and a Colonial Heights can cooler commemorating the group’s 60th year. A crowd of admirers mobbed the chief after the presentation.

“Landing in Lawrence was the best thing that ever happened to me in my career,” Romero said, as he stood in the street receiving farewell wishes.

“I wish I were younger so I could stay longer. I came to Lawrence 15 years ago not knowing one person in Massachusetts. Now, 15 years later, I have thousands of friends. Working together, we made a difference and for me, I will take that forever,” he said.
