Haverhill in a Minute: City to buy back guns tomorrow

The city will host its first Gun Buyback program tomorrow from 6:30 to 11 p.m. at the Citizens Center, 10 Welcome St.

This anonymous program gives residents and opportunity to turn in working pistols, rifles, shotguns or assault rifles and get local gift cards for the transactions. Non-working firearms, replicas, BB guns and ammunition will also be accepted. There is a three gift card limit, but there is no limit on transactions. All firearms are to be transported unloaded in the trunks of cars. All pistols are to be carried to the site in either a box or clear bag. Rifles and shotguns are to be left in the seller’s trunk. Upon arrival at the buying site, a plain clothes officer will assist the seller with carrying the long gun into the facility, as to avoid any accidents or injury.

This program aims to collect as many firearms as possible that sit in homes and cut down on the amount of potential guns that could be stolen during house breaks and be introduced to the criminal trade or get into the hands of children.

Psychic readings are tomorrow

Winnekenni Castle will host an evening of psychic readings tomorrow from 6 to 9:30 p.m.

Cost is $20 per 15-minute reading. Appointments are booked at the door only and multiple appointments may be purchased to create longer blocks of time with the readers. Doors open at 5:55 p.m. Guests are permitted to purchase later-hour appointments, leave the castle and then return in time for their session. Socializing before and after appointments in the castle’s main hall is welcomed, Refreshments will be available.
