We are awaiting word from the Massachusetts Statehouse as to when they will be allowing public gatherings on the grounds. We are developing the program for our Massachusetts Law Enforcement Memorial Service. We have become aware of the National Law Enforcement Memorial service being held this year at their Memorial and the National Mall October 13-6, 2021, so we will try to avoid those dates.
This year we will be honoring those officers whose names we placed on the Memorial wall but our event was canceled in 2020.
