Haircut raffle to help veterans


Derry News

---- — DERRY — Birch Heights will sponsor a Haircut Raffle on Saturday, Aug. 31, at 3 p.m. for the benefit of the Outward Bound for Veterans program.

Local hair salons and barbershops, including Demalias, Water’s Edge Salon & Spa, Salon Bogar, Ginette’s Beauty Shop, Carlene’s Barber Shop and Firefly Salon, have contributed haircut prizes for this worthwhile cause. Raffle tickets will be $5 each.

Outward Bound for Veterans helps soldiers re-acclimate to society through wilderness courses that draw on the healing power of teamwork and challenge.

From the canyons of Utah to the coast of Maine, expeditions take place in some of the most spectacular natural environments in the country these veterans have so bravely defended.

In 2011, more than 300 Holiday Retirement communities throughout the country through fundraising events and the generous donations of residents, their families, fellow veterans, and communities members were able to raise $1.2 million to send 600 deserving veterans through the Outward Bound for Veterans program. They are striving to do it again.

Watermelon and lemonade will be served on the porch.

Call Birch Heights at 425-7755 to RSVP.

Birch Heights, located at 7 Kendall Pond Road, is one of Holiday Retirement’s independent retirement living communities throughout the United States and Canada. For more information, call 425-7755 or visit holidaytouch.com.
