Serving Westford

Westford Remembers Memorial Fund started out as a fund to help preserve and revitalize Westford’s many memorials.

Since COVID-19, we have expanded our reach to help our community members that have come upon hard times and need additional assistance.

A Passion for our Community

We are Westford residents coming together to rally the efforts of our town to assist our neighbors and preserve our historical people and events.

Our Events

In Zayan’s memory

Tragedy struck a local family and our community when Zayan Mayanja, a 6-year-old non-verbal autistic child, went missing overnight in 2024 died after he was found in Nabnasset Lake. An outpouring of sympathy for the family and other autistic members of our community asked what they could do to help and maybe prevent future similar situations.

Westford Remembers, Inc. has purchased Apple AirTags and various AirTag holders to be provided to families of autistic and Alzheimer’s family members to assist in locating those at risk of wandering. The AirTag devices are to be managed and distributed via the Westford Police Department and Westford’s Council on Aging Outreach and Social Services program.

Westford Police urge any residents that have family on the autism spectrum, or with relatives that have any other cognitive condition, to contact Westford Police at 978-399-2345 and sign up for the department’s cognitive alert registration program. Doing so will “greatly assist law enforcement in locating your loved one if they were to ever go missing”. Requests for AirTags will be included in this registration program.

Westford COA’s Social Services can be reached at 978-692-5523. Support groups, family support and many other services are available to all Westford residents.


Veterans on the Common

Prior to Memorial Day and Veterans Day we’ve placed photo signs around the Town Common honoring our veterans. Honor your veteran family member, veteran friends or just donate to the cause and we will find a veteran you can sponsor. We are asking for $100 for each new sign.

Signs previously purchased, will be placed on the Common as well. The link to the sign order form can be found here or click on the sign photo on this page.

You can also honor your veterans by purchasing a tee-shirt for $30. Sizes from Small to 3XL are available.
