There will be a retirement party for John Burns, who spent over sixty years in the Saugus school system. We've been asked to request people to submit any interesting / amusing stories they have about John Burns for possible reading during the party. Did you have Mr. Burns as an English teacher? Did you teach under him when he was an administrator? Send us your stories. Stories should be limited to about a half page, and to be used must be in by April 10. Stories from people who have since moved out of state will be especially welcomed, but stories from people still living in Saugus will certainly also be used. We'll post the details of the party itself on the Community Event Calendar as soon as we have them.
