    We are so very fortunate to live in a community where the sacrifices of our soldiers have not been forgotten.  The people of Danvers are encouraged to pay tribute to the patriotism these brave men and women showed in their efforts to honor our country’s freedom. ~ Dick Moody, President of the Danvers Veterans Council

    Memorial Day is about gratitude and remembrance and an opportunity to honor the men and women who have paid the ultimate price while serving our country at home and abroad.  We are delighted to resume our traditional Memorial Day events after a two-year hiatus caused by the Pandemic and look forward to a great turnout. ~ Kelley Rayos-Teixeira, Director of Veterans’ Services.
