Northeast MA/Southeast NH

The Northeast MA/Southeast NH Squadron was formed by John “Pete” LaFond of Westford, MA and Bradford “Brad” Smith of Nashua, NH. The first meeting was held on May 23,1998 at American Legion Post 313 (association member) in No. Chelmsford, MA. A second was held on June 16, 2001 at the same location. .
A third get-together was a dinner/dance cruise held on August 1, 2005 on the M/S Mount Washington cruise ship on Lake Winnipesaukee at Weirs Beach in Laconia, NH. We have been hosting this event yearly ever since.

On May 20, 2008 A breakfast/meeting was held at Skip’s Restaurant Chelmsford, MA with SAFB vets from MA and NH attending. A second meeting was held at this same location on June 25, 2008 with 22 vets, wives and friends in attendance. At this meeting it was decided that elections be held, Norm Morency was elected as Squadron Commander and Pete LaFond as Vice Commander.

At this time our roster is at forty five Sampson vets including one Sampson Navy vet. Our monthly turnout average is at twenty.

At present our monthly breakfast/meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at Comets Diner in Tyngboro, MA. We also host several annual luncheons with our ladies/friends.

Pictured are some of the Sampson vets who attend our monthly breakfast get-togethers.
