The Exchange Club of Haverhill will present its second annual “Stop the Bull Haverhill” anti-bullying rally on May 2 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the athletic fields behind Haverhill High School, 137 Monument St.
More than 1,000 students and adults from Haverhill and surrounding communities are expected to attend. The rally is free and open to the public.
The event will feature a performance by The Veayo Twins, two sisters from Maine who perform rock, R&B and country with an inspirational message targeting the pain and alienation that teens can face in today's culture, including bullying and other traumatic experiences. There will also be a mechanical bull, food and refreshments, and powerful messages on the effects of bullying.
The event is sponsored in partnership with Pentucket Bank, ServPro and The Color Mint, with support provided by the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Haverhill and Haverhill Community Television. For more information, visit facebook.com/stopthebullhaverhill or twitter.com/HilliesStopBull.
