WESTBOROUGH – The week before Christmas, Westborough American Legion Post 163 initiated a Gift Baskets for Veterans program.
This first-year effort by the rejuvenated post selected 15 Westborough veterans to kick off the program, and baskets were delivered by American Legion volunteers.
All the receiving veterans were surprised and pleased with the baskets, and the thought behind the baskets.
The post is hopeful that the program will be expanded in the future, so additional veterans can be included to receive the holiday baskets as a thank you and remembrance of their service.
Commander Paul Horrigan extended heartfelt thanks to all who participated.
