We're currently hard at work on another local non-profit organization and another official Saugus commission. Expect them soon...

September 28, 1998

There have again been updates to both the event calendar page and the yard sales page, but what we'd really like to remind people of today is that when they submit feedback asking a specific question, they need to supply an e-mail address, phone number, or something in order for us to reply. We've had a few questions lately from people who didn't provide us with any means of replying to them -- such questions must go unanswered. Here at we have very high standards regarding personal privacy; we don't use cookies or similar dirty tricks to harvest e-mail addresses and we don't build up e-mail address lists or use spam. E-mail addresses given to us attached to questions or submissions will only be used for obvious and appropriate purposes.

September 24, 1998

In addition to updates to both the event calendar page and the yard sales page, we've added detailed information on the upcoming Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day in Saugus. This Collection Day information is also freely available in printed form at the Saugus Town Hall.

September 22, 1998

There was a new yard sale entry added in today. In fact, there may be more activity on that page than usual in the next week or two since it was invited to be a part of the national yard sale web ring. (For those of you who don't know what a web ring is, it's a collection of related web sites linked together in a large circular chain.) Of course, this is just happening now at the end of yard sale season, so it may not make much of a difference this year.

September 21, 1998

There were some new calendar entries today; in fact, it changes almost daily even if these little daily notices don't always mention it.

September 18, 1998

Little changes here and there all over the place today; too numerous to individually mention but all very minor. Perhaps the biggest is the removal of the TV & Radio page has been removed from the sidebar. It is still available through the Entertainment page, though. The Help section has been added to the sidebar. Of course feel free to give feedback for the type of information you'd most like to see in the Help area.

September 17, 1998

The Saugus Conservation Commission Page is now available. Its direct URL is:
It will be permanently available through the Government page, too.

September 16, 1998

It's a pretty quiet day today, although there was one new yard sale entry and a couple of new calendar entries. As mentioned before, we'll use these little quiet periods to announce companies that were put online by prior to us doing these daily updates. The company for today is GBA, Incorporated. They were established back in 1996, are located on Central Street in Saugus, and specialize in oncology simulators for the treatment of cancer patients.

September 15, 1998

We've added a few more cards into the big online Post Card Collection. Thanks to Fred Brooks for loaning us the post cards to scan and put online. Remember, if you have any old post cards of Saugus that currently aren't in the collection, if you let us borrow them we'll put them online with the appropriate credit and then return them as quickly as possible.

September 14, 1998

Some pictures from Saugus Founders' Day have been posted. It was a fun time for all who attended. To the lucky dozen or so who managed to find the "T-Shirt Dude" in one of his incarnations and were brave enough to say the password for the T-Shirt Contest, congratulations!

Finally, there have been a few additions to the Yard Sales Page for yard sales this weekend.

Aside from Saugus Public Schools classes starting, it's been a pretty quiet week. Another Saugus commission is currently having its home page constructed; expect it soon. In the meanwhile, we'd like to use this little quiet period to announce one of our first clients who was brought online just before we were doing these daily updates. The company is HANSCO Industries Incorporated. They were established back in 1966 and are located on Whitney Street near Cliftondale in Saugus. We have a few other clients who were also brought online before these daily updates were being done; these we'll announce over the next few weeks to ensure that everyone gets equal time.
