We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during these times. After much consideration, the Veterans Day ceremonies for 2020 are cancelled due to safety concerns. However, we are producing a video with WestfordCAT to honor all veterans and those currently serving in the military. This year we would like to include short videos from our local veterans. If interested, please see the attached pdf for more information. Once completed the video will be broadcasted in multiple locations on and around Veterans Day... Thank you for your understanding.
