Natick to be designated "Home of Champions"

NATICK

The town has been using the slogan "Natick: Home of Champions" since local firefighters won a prestigious skill competition sometime in the 1800s.

With hometown hero Doug Flutie's NFL success and a series of championship runs by local athletic teams, the name has become more dear to the hearts of local residents.

Area state lawmakers have advanced a bill that would officially designate Natick as the Home of Champions.

As part of a compromise, the legislation would designate Brockton as the City of Champions, a moniker the city has used for some time. The bill has yet to receive final approval.
