A â€œSalute to Our Veteransâ€ was held at the November meeting of the Winthrop Catholic Womanâ€™s Club Monday night.
Andrew Biggio, a former Winthrop resident and veteran, was invited to attend and explain the Boston 3rd Annual Wounded Vet Run, a motorcycle ride and concert that supports wounded veterans.

The club stated in press release that â€œWe as residents of the town of Winthrop should be proud of the hard work that veterans like Andrew Biggio do for the people who put their lives on the line for all of us and we want to thank them all. We have many people in our town who work hard for these veterans. Thank you again and God Bless.â€
