Saugus Iron Works open for 2019 season Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site has opened for the season. The Visitor Center, Museum and restrooms will have open hours Wednesday-Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Guided tours, programs, special events and Junior Ranger Programs will be available throughout the season until Oct. 31. “Due to impacts from the federal government shutdown resulting in hiring delays, we will be open Wednesday-Sunday instead of the usual seven-day operation,” Chief of Visitor Experience and Community Engagement Susan Russo said. “The grounds, however, are typically open to visitors seven days a week to birdwatch, picnic and enjoy the great outdoors! Remember to Carry In, Carry Out.” Visit Saugus Iron Works and “Broadhearth,” the Eastern National Park Store at 244 Central Street in Saugus, Mass., or call 781233-0050.

In case of inclement weather, it will be held at the library. All are welcome to attend this annual ceremony honoring our POW/MIA. Still seeking “privatization” people At some point, soon, the School Committee is going to meet and vote on whether to keep the 21 custodians or eliminate their jobs by privatizing. If somebody has a beef and wants to opine about the virtues of getting minimum wage janitors from out of town to take care of the new school building that will be opening up next year, call me up and we’ll have coffee for the next installment of “The Advocate Asks.” But so far, nobody is really going out publicly saying why it would benefit Saugus Public Schools to dump the janitors.

Local author plans library visit on June 11 New Friends of the Saugus Public Library are pleased to present local author and Wakefield resident Gloria Mezikofsky, who has written an adventuresome children’s book, “A Perfectly Snowy Day,” on Tuesday, June 11 at 6:00 p.m. The book details a childhood memory in verse with colorful illustrations that will capture the attention of young readers. Her husband, Merrill, an accomplished artist who illustrated the book, will create an original illustration. Gloria will walk her audience through the book creation process detailing a self-publishing journey that began with a cookbook, “Dessert Gems.” This summer, a second children’s book, “Goggles for a Gloop,” will be in print. The reader is drawn into the story as adverse conditions arise and the Gloop learns a big lesson in forgiveness. Gloria’s husband, Merrill, completed over 40 illustrations for this latest venture. Please join New Friends for this free, adults-only program. No reservations are necessary.

She graduated from Barre & Soul’s 200-hour yoga teacher–training program. “Yoga is my passion, and has been transforming in my life. I believe that yoga is for everybody.
