American Legion Commander, Steve Bradford, Sunday morning told members the details of the post's upcoming Food Festival to be held Sunday May 13th from 11 am to 3 pm on the grounds of the Holliston Historical Society. Bradford said he was well aware that it is also Mothers Day, but that it was the only date the event could be held.

Alex Walters, below center, and his mom Kathy joined the monthly meeting to wrap up Alex's Eagle Scout Project which has been in the works for months.

Walter's constructed three flag retirement boxes to be located in town at the town hall, post office and senior center. Residents with torn and tattered American Flags may place them in the boxes provided and veterans will then dispose of the flags with a proper ceremony.

Walters will deploy his first retirement box at the selectmen's meeting Monday night. The box is scheduled to be placed under the front 1st floor stairway.

Members were alerted to a breakfast meeting being sponsored by the the Holliston Senior Center and Holliston American Legion Post #47 on May 1st at the Holliston Senior Center at 8:30 am. Commander Bradford said he realized that meeting to advise veterans of the benefits and services available to them is on a weekday, but he hoped to have a future meeting so those who work will have a chance to attend. The meeting is open to veterans, spouses and caregivers. Speaking will be the town's Veterans Service Officers Sarah Bateman and Asst. VSO David DeGanne along with Vet Center Representative Curtis Armitage.

The article explains what a Flag Retirement Box is as mentioned last week in HR. I was puzzled. Thanks.
