Dottie and Dick Fincher Award
January 29, 2021
Dottie and Dick Fincher moved to Westport in 1969 and raised their three boys, all the while giving back to the community they love. Dottie served on the Westport PTA boards of Kings Highway, Bedford, and Staples, as well as the Christ and Holy Trinity Altar Guild. She was also a member of the Earthplace, Westport Historical Society and Westport Garden Club Boards. When her boys reached Staples High School, she decided to go back to school herself and received a Masters Degree in Special Education at Fairfield University. Dottie then taught in Westport Public Schools for 25 years! After retiring, she tutored at Mercy Learning Center in Bridgeport. Dick served on the Board of Trustees at Earthplace, Staples Tuition Grants, Westport Tree Board, Christ & Holy Trinity Church Vestry and Usher’s Guild. Over the years, Dick also took on various coaching positions in town with Little League Baseball, Softball, and Boys’ Soccer. Both Dottie and Dick remain very active in town and continue to appreciate all of Westport, while cherishing their children, grandchildren and friends. They are honored with this award from their children.
