Twenty years have now passed

Twenty years have now passed. Still missed and in our thoughts and prayers.

Year End Message

The year, 2021, is coming to a close. Therefore, I would like to thank the McGregor Board of Directors (in particular Stacey Feeney for her tireless efforts over all these years), our Volunteers, and our Vendor/Donors for their friendship, time and their dedication that has allowed us to thrive during these difficult times and over the past 20 years. I would especially like to thank all the golfers, donors and sponsors that have shown their support for the Foundation, the Members of Public Safty and our Community since that tragic day in 2001. We would also like to thank Roger Williams University for managing and supporting the McGregor Endowment at RWU.

During this holiday season, let’s all stand shoulder to shoulder in support of our Police Officers, our Fire Fighters, our EMS workers and all the healthcare professionals, our Communities and our children. Let them all know how much they are appreciated for their sacrifices, and loved because we are all one big family with the same goal – keeping everyone safe and secure on our streets, in our homes and businesses, and in our schools.

Again, thank you all, and until we meet down the road in 2022, stay safe and be happy.


– Walter Barlow (EPPD Ret./President)

20th Anniversary Dedication

Tomorrow, Sept. 13th, the friends and family of Major Alister Crawford McGregor will gather for the 20th time to celebrate his life…a life that tragically ended abruptly and without warning. This gathering, however, falls in the shadows of the many great men and women we’ve lost. It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Sgt. Gino Caputo of the Barrington RI Police Department, this weekend, from his battle with Covid-19. Please, keep Gino, his family and friends, and our brothers and sisters of the Barrington PD.

This year’s Tournament is dedicated to Sgt. Gino Caputo and Connecticut State Police Sgt. Brian Mohl. Sgt. Mohl died when his cruiser was swept up by the recent flood waters in Hurricane Ida’s destructive path. Our hearts and prayers go out to his friends and family, and his law enforcement brothers and sisters of the State of Connecticut. Rest In Peace, Sergeants Caputo and Mohl. Missing you will be the hardest part.

Support and defend the members of public safety in your state and community…because that’s what they do for you. Never forget.
