Ever hear of the SETI project? Did you know that you can help go through real SETI data yourself with your own computer? It doesn't matter if you're using UNIX, Mac OS, BeOS, OS/2, or MS-Windows, and it doesn't matter if your computer isn't exactly state-of-the-art. Check out our Saugus SETI Team page to learn about SETI and how you can use your computer's idle time to boost our local SETI team. While it's unlikely that our numbers will ever come close to those of the world's really large organizations, we will quite possibly compare favorably against various other localities and online groups if enough people participate.

The following message is printed at the request of the committee currently writing the book A Gathering of Memories, Saugus 1900-2000:

A committee has been organized to write A Gathering of Memories, Saugus 1900-2000. Parts and pieces of Saugus are disappearing into a haze and we want to collect as many of them as possible before they are gone. The project goes exceptionally well, with some exciting research being accomplished by many people. We are looking at a publication date in the first quarter of of the year 2000.

The committee is seeking to determine how many potential buyers there are so a press run can be established. At the same time we would like to find out how many would order copies in advance when we know the approximate publication date. At the moment the cost of the book is estimated at about $30 - $35. Any and all money left after printing and distribution costs have been met will be given to scholarship activity at the high school.
