From the Commander:
After discussions today with the Executive Board of the Saugus Veterans Council, and in light of Governor Baker closing schools until May 4, 2020, we have decided to cancel the annual Memorial Day Parade and Ceremonies scheduled for May 23, 2020. This is not a decision that was taken lightly. However, in order to protect the health and well-being of our residents and participants, we feel that this is the most prudent approach. Should circumstances change dramatically before Memorial Day, we will revisit and reconsider appropriate ceremonies to remember our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen who made the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you for your continued support and understanding during this most difficult time.
Stephen L. Castinetti, CAPT, USN (Ret)
Commander, Saugus Veterans Council
We have been informed that the Saugus American Legion has decided to close its doors until September. As a result, the Saugus Veterans Council will follow suit and suspend all meetings until the Legion reopens its doors. Stand by for further announcements.
