Grafton – The Grafton Police Association/Alliance will be hosting a basketball game Thursday, May 7, as a team of Grafton police officers and other local athletes face off against the New England Patriots All- Stars. The game will be held at Grafton High School, 24 Providence Road, starting at 7 p.m.

 

This is the 16th time the Alliance has held this game. Originally the Grafton team was composed of members of the town’s police department, according to Patrolman James Crosby, who is helping to organize the event. Over the past few years, the team has evolved to also include student-athletes from Grafton High School, Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School and The Grafton Job Corps., to give it a truly community feel.

 

“The kids are thrilled to share the court with professional athletes and we are equally as thrilled to provide the opportunity,” Crosby said.

 

The game is the primary fundraiser for the Alliance with monies raised going back into the community to support local groups and organizations.

 

“In the past years the Grafton Police Alliance has awarded more than $25,000 in academic scholarships to graduating Grafton High School students, supported and sponsored local youth sports teams, donated to local families displaced by fire and raised funds for our local community Food Bank,” Crosby said.

 

“[It] also has supported recognized national charities such as the American Red Cross and the Wounded Warrior Project,” he added.  “It is only through the generous donations from our citizens and local businesses that permit the Grafton Police Alliance to fund these valued causes.

 

We are grateful for the support we receive from the community and we are looking forward to another entertaining game this year.”

 

Tickets for the event are $10 each and are available at the Grafton Police Department, 28 Providence Road or at the door the night of the event.

Marlborough: St. Mary’s Credit Union to hold youth money management seminar

Marlborough – St. Mary’s Credit Union will present a free community service seminar Thursday, May 7, to educate young people about managing personal finances. The seminar will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the credit union’s headquarters, 46 Lizotte Drive, Marlborough. All are welcome; pre-registration is required. The seminar will focus on checking and savings accounts, loans, credit and collections, and setting goals and budgeting.

 

St. Mary’s Credit Union President and CEO James C. Garvey noted, “There is, unfortunately, a disturbing lack of knowledge about managing money among young people. Knowing that schools are already hard-pressed to offer these programs within the existing school day, St. Mary’s Credit Union has decided to take a lead role locally to address this important need within the community.”

 

Dinner is included with the seminar, as well as prizes and giveaways throughout the evening.

 

“We know the importance of keeping young people’s attention and that’s why we are designing the night to be both fun and educational,” said St. Mary’s Credit Union Marketing Vice President Anthony J. Battista.

 

“As students graduate from high school and begin college – they should have some basic skills and knowledge about managing their money,” Battista said. “We will teach them about budgets, credit and avoiding common traps that create debt. I hope that a lot of people will take advantage of this opportunity.”

 

For more information, or to register to attend this seminar, call 508-490-6835.
