Thomas Hutton parade raises $2K for charity

Good deeds are continuing in the name of a veteran town police lieutenant who founded Nahant’s Christmas parade in 1995.

Despite bitter temperatures, about 65 gathered for the 21st annual Thomas Hutton Santa Parade this weekend and more than $2,000 was raised for local charities. The parade was renamed last year for the longtime officer who saw the joy a Christmas parade brought to Lynn and decided to bring the same to Nahant.

Hutton died in September 2015, almost nine months after sustaining serious injuries from a fall on a patch of ice in his driveway. He had retired from the Nahant Police Department in 2014 following 42 years of service.
