Please join us in wishing lifelong Saugonian Darren Brown and his bride-to-be Stacey Breda all the best as they will be getting married tomorrow. Besides helping us out here behind the scenes from time to time (you may recognize Darren's voice if you've ever called into as he has helped man the phones on more than one occasion) Darren is also known locally as a former Town Meeting Member and the current president of the Saugus Historical Society, and he was the brains behind the Educational Civil War Road Trip.

The polls will be open only from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM at the Belmonte Middle School. If you cannot vote that day, remember to register with the Town Clerks' office for an absentee ballot before the Town Hall closes tomorrow.
