  1. Thanks for being the 1st comment on our new site, Regina! I too am excited about this event; especially the “til midnight” part. It should be a good night! (PS. now that you have a “previously approved comment” all of your future comments will post/appear immediately (without being held for admin approval)).

    • I agree! It sounds like a good time for us ‘big kids’.

      Who are you? I have asked a few Devens residents if they know who the adminstrator to this site is and so far, nobody knows. You have done a wonderful job of recording all the news on Devens. Unfortunately, we don’t have our own newspaper and we are sometimes the last to know about events. Do you know about a ceremony at the Fort Devens cemetery? I saw a sign today but I don’t know the day or hours of the memorial service.

      • Thanks for the kind words and I’m glad you enjoy the blog. : ) Towards end of last year, I wanted to give blogging a try and figured why not blog about Devens. It seemed like there wasn’t a place on the web to go and chit-chat about the day to day happenings in Devens and/or a repository for the prior days Devens news articles. I haven’t heard about the ceremony at the Devens cemetery but see what I can find.

  2. There are now 41 other followers. I’ve told some neighbors about the site and they really appreciate being able to search Devens info in one great location. Keep up the great work! v/r Regina-
