  On Wednesday, April 13, at our Saugus Historical Society meeting, a round of Happy Birthday rang out for Birthday boy Jack Klecker!

  April 13 but what year, Jack?

  Jack, 85, who is a U.S. Navy Veteran and Historical Society Board Member, received several awards during his birthday month. Jack received an award from Saugus American Legion Post #210. The Daughters of the American Revolution (“God, Home and Country”) just awarded Jack two significant awards on April 8 at the M.E.G. Center D.A.R. Awards Ceremony meeting. (Stay tuned for the D.A.R. Article by Gail Cassarino for more info and pictures of Jack’s awards!)

  Jack built a scale model of Saugus Iron Works, often at times using tweezers. Jack stated that there was a plaque on the wall beside the case that held some of his biography, and he also mentioned and showed the model of the farmhouse he grew up in. The scale model of Saugus Iron Works encased in glass is a sight to see as well as the Saugus High School bands on display – Jack worked tirelessly to complete both projects. These sights may be viewed at 30 Main St. – home of the Saugus Historical Society.
