Scholarship fundraiser planned in memory of Pentucket, NECC grad


The Eagle-Tribune

---- — A Bowl-a-Thon in memory of Zack Zalewski of Groveland will be held on May 31 at 6 p.m. at Leo’s Super Bowl, 84 Haverhill Road (Route 110) in Amesbury.

Participants may form their own five-person team or simply register and be assigned to a team. The event will include a silent auction, raffle prizes, music, food and beverages. Tickets, $25 for adults and $5 for children include two strings of bowling, shoes and pizza. All proceeds go to the Zack Zalewski Memorial Scholarship Fund, established in 2012 in memory of Zack, who lost his life in a car accident in Haverhill in February 2012.

His parents, Ed and Cindy Zalewski, want to extend their son’s love of giving by offering two scholarships in his name — the first to a Pentucket Regional High School senior who exemplifies Zack’s exuberance and charismatic spirit, and the second to a deserving Bagnall Elementary School student who wishes to attend the ski and snowboard program at Ski Bradford, where Zack taught snowboarding.

Zack was a 2008 graduate of Pentucket Regional High School, where he was an integral member of the Sachems football team. He graduated from Northern Essex Community College with a degree in liberal arts. Only 22 at the time of his death, Zack touched many people during his short life. A true and loyal friend, he was always there to lend a hand to a friend or family member in need, and always ready with a joke and a warm smile, his parents said.

To participate in this fundraiser, contact Ed Zalewski at 978-204-4751 or edz1@aol.com, or Cindy Zalewski at 978-314-5433 or czalewsk@aol.com. You can also sign up on Facebook in memory of Zack Zalewski.

Evening blasting starts tonightin Windham

WINDHAM — Evening blasting starts tonight on the north side of Route 111 between Wall Street and 87 Indian Rock Road at Exit 3 on Interstate 93.

Blasting in this vicinity is required to take place after normal business hours as an additional safety precaution, according to the N.H. Department of Transportation.

Blasting will take place daily at approximately 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday this week. This is in addition to the blasting currently taking place between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. This blasting is required to construct the new alignment of Route 111.

Traffic on Route 111 may be temporarily stopped during blasting as a safety precaution, resulting in minor delays.

This project is part of the construction of a new I-93 roadway in the vicinity of Exit 3. R.S. Audley of Bow is the general contractor for the $32 million project, which is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2016.
