If you can be the first to figure out the answer to one of the questions below and bring that answer to the booth at Founders' Day, you'll win a free T-shirt. Some of the questions are harder than others; remember that you have to be the first with a correct answer for a particular question. Answers can be found in a variety of places; some can be found online on; others can be found in the library; a few can be found in popular Saugus books: Of Time and the River and A Gathering of Memories; still others can be found on plaques and monuments in town. We're starting off the day with T-shirts available in a variety of colors and sizes, but size selection will be on a first-come, first-served basis we recommend that you figure out your clue early so you can get your pick of T-shirt color and size.
