Northborough American Legion hopes restored tank builds community

August 4th, 2017

Northborough – Gisele Giordano, the manager, function coordinator and treasurer for the Vincent F. Picard American Legion Post 234 in Northborough, has always kept an eye on the hall’s Cold War-era tank from her second-floor office window. Recently, however, thanks to an extensive restoration, she has also watched it gather a steady stream of visitors and invigorate the legion’s community.

The tank came to Northborough in 1995, the same year the U.S. military officially demilitarized it. In the decades that followed, the town’s harsh weather stripped parts of its paint and caused streaks of rust to drip down its sides.

But thanks to the Community Service program run by Worcester County Sheriff Lewis Evangelidis’s office, thousands of dollars of labor was recently performed, at no cost to the school, by minimum security inmates.
