Dailies for December of 2003

December 31, 2003

The Saugus Emergency Management Agency site was updated recently.

December 30, 2003

The Saugus High School Hockey Team has asked us to let everyone know that the winners of their "Holiday Lottery Raffle" were drawn on December 27, 2003 at the Saugus Federal Credit Union Christmas Tournament at Kasabuski Arena, and wanted to publically extend their thanks to all who took part in this fundraiser.

December 29, 2003

Some entries were added to the Filename Extensions List today.

December 26, 2003

We just wanted to confirm that the eagerly awaited 2004 Saugus Historical Society calendar is definitely happening. We're working on it now, and it'll be going to the printers Monday morning and will be available (hopefully) starting January 1st.

December 25, 2003

Happy holidays from everyone here at The office will be closed today and tomorrow for the holiday. However, the Community Events Calendar and other like pages will continue to be updated.

December 24, 2003

It's been a while since the last update on the Saugus SETI team has been posted here. Saugus area machines have already contributed over 3100 results, utilizing over seven years' worth of CPU time that would have otherwise been wasted. If your computer is sitting mostly idle through the holidays, why not put it to a good use?

December 23, 2003 was updated today.

December 22, 2003

The US Post Office sent us a special sort of holiday greetings -- apparently their policy has changed and non-profit institutions are no longer allowed to link to their ZIP Code database for the benefit of regular people sending regular mail -- the service is now only available for companies using special postal services. As a consequence the popular ZIP Codes, Etc. page will have to have its ZIP Codes portion disabled for the foreseeable future. Apparently they would rather have people calling them on the phone asking them for ZIP Codes than simply checking online... If you would like to complain about this change in policy, you can send them a (polite, please!) message via their feedback form.

It looks like the eagerly awaited 2004 Saugus Calendar (created by the Saugus Historical Society) may happen after all. We mentioned earlier it was in jeopardy due to a lack of sponsors, but the heroics of a few last-minute volunteers and sponsors have helped turn things around. We'll have the final word on its fate by next Wednesday at the latest.

December 18, 2003

The Organizations, Clubs, and Places of Worship page was updated today.

December 17, 2003

The Saugus Historical Society site (note that this is not the same as the Saugus Historical Commission site as the two groups are different) was updated today.

December 16, 2003

The Saugus Historical Commission site was recently updated.

December 12, 2003

We've been asked about the 2004 edition of the popular Saugus Calendar normally published by the Saugus Historical Society. Currently the word is that due to a lack of sponsorship, there will not be one for 2004. This can still change, though; if your company would like to help sponsor the 2004 Historic Saugus Calendar by purchasing an advertisement slot in it, please call either at 781-231-2621 or the Society at 781-233-7232.

December 11, 2003

The Community Events Calendar is seeing more activity than normal as various groups start to plot their activities for the new year.

December 10, 2003

The Saugus High School Alumni Association site was updated today.

December 9, 2003

The Computer Terms Glossary was updated today with some new definitions.

December 8, 2003

We've uploaded photos from the Hammersmith Holiday Stroll & Lighting Ceremony held this past Friday night and Saturday.

December 6, 2003

Believe it or not, the Hammersmith Holiday Stroll is still on, although the trolleys are not running because it is no longer deemed safe for them to do so with the current accumulations and continuing snow. Also, many of the individual sites are either closed or having delayed openings; it's best to call ahead before heading out.

December 5, 2003

By far the biggest question of the day is "What's going to happen to this year's Hammersmith Holiday Stroll in light of the big storm on the horizon?" The quick answer is that both the Stroll tomorrow and the Tree Lighting Ceremony tonight will go as planned regardless of the weather. More details of what will happen where when are available on the schedule.

December 4, 2003

The Saugus Housing Authority site was updated today.

December 3, 2003

The Saugus Historical Society site was updated today.

December 2, 2003

We've posted information about this year's "Dirty Dozen" award presentation held earlier today at Vitale Park / Lobsterman's Landing.

December 1, 2003

There have already been slight scheduling changes made to this year's Hammersmith Holiday Stroll schedule. We'll continue to add information as it comes in. Also, the Saugus Chamber of Commerce site received some updates today.
