*More details coming soon! Event details subject to change.

On July 4th only, the Village will host a Citizen Naturalization Ceremony.   The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will present candidates to the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, and they will pledge their Oath of Allegiance to the United States for the very first time. Please note: The Citizen Naturalization Ceremony typically takes place on the Village Common, and there is plenty of space for families of the new citizens and the general public to watch. In the case of rain, the ceremony will be moved inside, and priority seating will be given to the families and friends of those who are becoming new citizens. Thank you for your understanding!
