Anna Maria's Molly Bish Center Presents Missing Children's Day

MCD 2018
Massachusetts’s Missing Children’s Day

On Wednesday, May 30, 2018, we commemorate the 18th Missing Children’s Day in Massachusetts.  Families, friends, and community members are invited to honor the lives that have been taken from their loved ones too soon.  The ceremony will be held at the Grand Staircase in the Boston State House at 11 a.m.  The Molly Bish Center and Foundation will host families of missing and murdered children across the Commonwealth hearing from various politicians, assembling a “Wall of Wonder” with each child’s name and picture, recognizing those who work on behalf of these children, and recognizing their families.  Vocalist, Brooks Milgate, will be offering his talents in song.


This event coincides with National Missing Children’s Day held in Washington D.C.  In 1983, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed May 25 as National Missing Children's Day. Each year, the Department of Justice (DOJ) commemorates Missing Children's Day with a ceremony honoring the heroic and exemplary efforts of agencies, organizations, and individuals to protect children. 


The Molly Bish Foundation has hosted this event for the past 17 years for families in Massachusetts. This year, Anna Maria College’s Molly Bish Center for the Protection of Children and the Elderly will assume the role of organizing the event going forward. The Molly Bish Foundation will remain involved in the event, but not to the capacity that they have been for the last 17 years.  We ask the public to please join us in honoring the over 100 missing children in Massachusetts, and to express our gratitude to John and Magi Bish for starting this ceremony and highlighting the plight of these children and their families.
