On Friday morning, part of Day Blvd was shut down in order to remove the old anchor at Marine Park!

That old anchor is actually the Kearsarge Memorial – dedicated to Naval Veterans of the Civil War, the Spanish War and WWI!  The South Boston Allied War Veterans Council recently received a grant for $75K to refurbish Kearsarge Memorial in Marine Park – and the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) announced it  would match the CPA funds for this memorial!

The anchor is one it’s way to Woburn to Skylight Studios to get refurbished and will be back soon!
