In 2004, John and Magi Bish collaborated with Anna Maria College to create the Molly Bish Center for the Protection of Children and the Elderly in memory of their daughter, Molly Ann Bish. Molly, a 16-year-old Warren resident, was abducted from her lifeguard post in 2000. The agonizing search for Molly came to an end in 2003 when her remains were found in Palmer, MA, only five miles from her home and from where she was abducted.
As a lifeguard, Molly took responsibility for the safety and protection of others. In her honor, the Center was established to promote the safety and protection of two of the most vulnerable groups in our society: children and the elderly.
