  1. Animal Control Donation 3-17-11

Official Text

To the Honorable Board:


The Animal Control Department has received a donation of a clothes dryer valued at $418.71 from Abigail R. Powers-Lowrey, Grace K. Takvorian and Maya L. Cooleybeck.  These elementary school youth organized a fund raising campaign to raise money to purchase the clothes dryer.  Having this dryer will allow our Animal Control Department to better care for animals in their care.  A recent newspaper article included with this communication further describes this group's benevolent efforts.


In accordance with M.G.L. Chapter 44, section 53A, which requires a vote of the Board of Aldermen for the expenditure of grants or gifts from the federal government, a charitable foundation, private corporation, or an individual or from the Commonwealth, a country or a municipality or agency thereof, I respectfully request that you accept this donation.


Respectfully submitted,


Joseph A. Curtatone,
