Three people were killed and nearly 300 others were injured in the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013 in Boston's Back Bay. Here’s a look back at how the bombings affected Dedham directly, one year later:
- The Dedham branch of Williams-Sonoma was among the company's Boston-area stores to temporarily remove pressure cookers from the shelves following the Boston Marathon bombing out of respect for victims.
- Dedham's CVS locations were among the company's branches to ban the selling of copies of a Rolling Stone magazine issue featuring a cover photo of Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
- In May last year, Dedham officials held a bake sale to benefit the One Fund Foundation and the Boston Marathon bombing victims.
- Also in May, the Riverside Trauma Center in Dedham offered to manage psychological first aid for all residents and businesses outside Boston who were impacted by the Boston Marathon bombings.
