STURBRIDGE — Newly appointed Director of Veterans Services Michael "Tim" Hickey, of Cherry Valley, has several ideas for assisting veterans and their family members, and he is eager to put them into action.

Hickey, an honorably discharged veteran of the United States Air Force, has hit the ground running since the Board of Selectmen ratified his appointment on Jan. 17. He already met many town officials and also had a discussion with Senior Center Director Melissa Beauchemin about speaking with seniors in the near future.

"I am looking forward to meeting the seniors and having a conversation with them," Hickey said. "Everyone I have met so far in Sturbridge has been very welcoming, and I would like to get to know even more people."
