Readings were provided by members of the Puritan Lawn community, the Lynnfield Knights of Columbus and Pastor Tom Coots. Bagpipe music was provided by Rob Eagan of the Boston Pipers Society.


During the weekend, a raffle was held in support of NEADS-World Class Service Dogs, which was founded in 1976. $1112 was raised for this organization. NEADS provides service dogs to veterans who are coping with physical limitations, hearing loss and post-traumatic stress. Since 2006, they have placed almost 100 dogs to deserving veterans.
