2017 ~ 2018
Hello everyone, I hope you all enjoyed your summer. 9/29/2017
As we head into the fall season it’s time to start thinking about everything that happens this time of year; such as Fall Festivals, and Halloween. But let’s not forget the maintenance that we all must undertake such as raking leaves and cleaning rain gutters and down spouts. This is a good time to check in on our area veterans and neighbors who may need a hand with these chores. Especially the handicapped and disabled many of which are unable to do these tasks without our assistance.
If you know someone who needs a hand reach out, better yet get other members of your Legion Family together and make it a day of community service. By doing this your community will become more aware of who the Legion Family is and all they do.
Also, don’t forget to record this information on your Consolidated Report Form it’s never too early to start documenting all that you do to support our veterans, their families and our communities.
I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event.
Hello Everyone 8/28/2017
I wanted to send out a reminder to everyone that the annual POW/MIA Ceremony held at Battleship Cove in Fall River MA aboard the USS Massachusetts is fast approaching. It will be held on Sunday September 10th . If you have never attended before, this event is well worth the ride. Members of the Legion Family which includes Legion, Auxiliary, Sons, and Legion Riders take part in this event along with special guest speakers. As always your admission to the event is free and if you arrive early you can also tour the other ships that are on display. If you would like more information please feel free to contact any of the Detachment Officers or Chairmen. Or you can contact me directly.
I look forward to seeing you at this events please show your support to the families of those men and women who are still missing or who paid the ultimate price for our freedom! Once again thank you for all that you do for our Veterans, their Family’s, and our Communities throughout the State.
Hello Everyone 8/2/2017

This will take place at Fitton Field, 1 College St., Worcester MA. If you are able to attend and show your support of this great program please stop by and attend.
This year’s Department Commander Mike Davis who is also an member of the Sons has been kind enough to share his schedule of Legion Family Events with us. As we receive this information we will be sharing it with all of you so we can further show our support of these great Legion events.
