Celebrating 26 Years of Community Pride

Thank you to everyone for a great Yankee Doodle weekend! Special thanks to Billerica Emergency Management, Police, Fire and School departments who worked tirelessly all day to keep everything running smoothly.


Thank you very much to the Yankee Doodle committee who planned this out for over a year.  Everyone did their part and many businesses and town departments send representatives to our meetings and their input is invaluable! 


We had some financial sponsors who were not included in our brochure due to timing so we will be updating our sponsor list and hope to have that posted later this week. 


Thank you again and see you next year!
