Learn What Is Happening at the COA
March and April 2021 ActivitiesAs we continue to develop our program mix and the sanitation / safety procedures for all involved at the BCOA, please note we continue to rely on advice and guidance from the Billerica Town Manager’s Office and the Board of Health Director.
