PLAISTOW —The William C. Bartlett Fund was created after Billy (Worm’s) house on Sweet Hill Road in Plaistow was destroyed due to a fire on May 17. Worm and his dog Roxy were in the home at the time of the fire. Roxy is out the hospital and doing well. Worm has a very long recovery ahead of him. A Fund at TD Bank has been set up to help rebuild Worm’s life: the William C. Bartlett Fund. Upcoming events planned for the fund are as follows:
