Boys & Girls Club to Hold Holiday Raffle
LUNENBURG -- The Boys & Girls Club is holding a holiday raffle to give out $3,500 worth of cash and prizes over 12 days before Christmas.
Starting Dec. 3, the raffle will feature a $2,500 grand cash prize, a Christmas tree, a lobster bake for 10 people, and other prizes.
The fundraiser will support the Boys & Girls Club, which provides activities and educational services to the youth in Lunenburg.
Students from the club have been out in the community spreading the word about the raffle, including at the T.C. Passios School handing out candy canes and opening doors for voters on Election Day.
It is $50 to enter the raffle. Visit the Boys & Girl’s Club’s website at bgcluboflunenburg.org . to join.
Leominster Library reaching out
LEOMINSTER -- In an effort to further expand its reach into the community, the Leominster Public Library has added the new position of outreach librarian.
Library Director Sondra Murphy, who created the job, likened it to the bookmobile programs run through other libraries that bring library materials to members of the public.
“We are trying to find locations that would like the library to bring books, conduct a storytime for children, and sign up people for library cards,” said Murphy.
The new outreach librarian position will officially become active in December.
