It was a process six years in the making. It started by selling military plaques to raise money for various veterans’ charities, then putting the colorful and wooden memorials on the rafters inside the McShawn’s Pub back porch in Cranston. Sunday, McShawn’s Pub Back Porch Veterans Association reached its pinnacle. The non-profit, which was founded in the name and memory of the late and highly-respected McShawn’s Pub proprietor Sean Holley, raised $9,200 Sunday by way of a number of auctions and donations. Add to that a surprise $5,000 check from the House of Representatives, by way of Cranston resident and Speaker Nicholas Mattiello, and the Rhode Island Fire Chiefs Honor Flight Hub was $14,200 richer.
