March 20 is the 7th Anniversary of our country's invasion of Iraq. On Saturday, March 20, there will be a vigil and march to remember that we still occupy Iraq and Afghanistan, and acknowledge the human toll.

Any one who would like to join this event should gather at the Natick Common Bandstand at 12:00. We will then walk to the Natick Army Base where we will read the names of those from Massachusetts who have lost their lives in these conflicts. We will also remember in silence the Iraqi and Aghanistan civilians, dead and wounded in this long conflict.
