Bradford Huskies donate to One Fund Boston
The Bradford Huskies USA Track & Field Youth Travel Team donated $1,858 to One Fund Boston after selling more than 800 Huskies custom-made Boston Marathon pride bracelets to the community.
These unique bracelets feature the 2013 Boston Marathon colors of yellow and blue, along with the words “Huskies Love Boston.” All proceeds from the sale of these bracelets went directly to One Fund Boston Inc., which was established by Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino to help raise money to help those families most affected by the bombings during this year’s Boston Marathon.
The Bradford Huskies team members and coaches wish to thank those who purchased a $3 bracelet from the team for this cause. The Bradford Huskies are a nonprofit, school-based running club certified by USA Track & Field. The team is composed of students in grades three through eight who primarily attend Bradford Elementary School and Hunking Middle School in Bradford.

Freedom Shrine rededication planned
The Breakfast Exchange Club of Greater Haverhill will rededicate its Freedom Shrine at the public library on June 11 at 9:30 a.m.
The event is being held as a reminder to citizens that the freedoms we enjoy today are a gift from the past and must be continually guarded and protected. The event is also an opportunity to honor men and women serving in U.S. Armed Forces.
The Freedom Shrine, a project of the National Exchange Club is a collection of photographic reproductions of original documents from American history. The display includes the Bill of Rights, the Mayflower Compact, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Lucinda Nolet, president of the Breakfast Exchange Club of Greater Haverhill, said the club wants future generations to learn how important it is to preserve our freedom. The Freedom Shrine program is one of many that Exchange clubs sponsor to encourage citizenship and patriotism among their fellow Americans. Exchange is a group or men and women working to make America a better place to live through one national project, prevention of child abuse and other community service projects.
