Raffle calendars raise funds for seniors


Newburyport Daily News

---- — To the editor:

During October, board members of the Friends of Newburyport Council on Aging and those of the Council on Aging along with members of both groups will be conducting a sale of raffle calendars at $10 each.

Each day in November cash prizes between $50 and $200 will be awarded in drawings conducted and announced by WNBP.

In addition to cash, a few gift certificates from the Greater Newburyport Chamber Of Commerce, Carry Out Café, Giuseppe’s and Starboard Galley will add sparkle to the event. Fowle’s Market has offered a free Thanksgiving dinner.

This is a “win-win” raffle to assist the Friends’ mission “to advocate for and address the needs of seniors by raising and expanding funds in conjunction with the Newburyport Council on Aging and the Community.”

Winners’ names will be returned to the “pot” for another chance so they may be lucky to win again. Take a chance to win, buy a calendar for family and friends or your own holiday shopping spree. They are also available at the Council on Aging Office (978-462-8650).

Many thanks to our Friends for their sales and purchases for success in this effort.
