Win a 4-foot tall Dale Rogers American Dog
HAVERHILL — The Cogswell ArtSpace renovation campaign is raffling off a 4-foot tall Dale Rogers American Dog sculpture valued at $2,900.
Those who donate as little as $50 to the campaign during the month of November will have chance to take the dog home or donate it to a favorite business or place that would love to have it.
Donations can be made online at https://go.rallyup.com/americandog-for-cogswell. As an added bonus, Pentucket Bank is currently matching all donations that come in through Dec. 18 so anything donated towards this fundraiser or more during that timeframe will be doubled.
The Cogswell ArtSpace campaign is continuously working to raise the $2.8 million needed to renovate the historic Cogswell School into a community art center. Creative Haverhill has successfully raised $2.2 million and is working to bring in the final funds as quickly as possible. Learn more at www.creativehaverhill.org/cogswell.
Groveland Police quit shaving
GROVELAND — The Groveland Police Department has joined more than 120 police departments across the New England to participate in the seventh annual Home Base No Shave fundraising campaign during the month of November.
Groveland officers are raising money for a program that is changing and saving the lives of veterans and their families, and promote conversations, raise awareness and break the stigma associated with seeking much-needed care. Individual officers in Groveland have pledged $100 donations to either forego the traditional grooming policy and grow beards and mustaches or wear a special Home Base pin throughout the month of November.
