The Stop & Shop A+ Rewards program is one of the best ways for local schools to raise money. Each year, local schools raise thousands of dollars for enrichment programs, classroom materials, etc.
Once you register your card to benefit a school, the school receives money for each A+ item you buy. It costs you nothing, and it doesn’t even affect your gas points.
It’s free money for schools; who could have a problem with that?

Presents: The Essex Coastal Byway: Learn about this exciting new trail through Essex County with Joel Brown.
Program will be held on Tuesday, October 29th at 7:30 pm at the Waterline Center, Essex Shipbuilding Museum 66 Main Street in Essex. Admission is $8 for members and $10 for non-members.
Joel Brown has written more than 400 articles for the Boston Globe, many of them on North Shore treasures, including the launch of the Ardelle, the restoration of the Adventure and the rebuilding of the Lane’s Cove Fish Shack. His book, THE ESSEX COASTAL BYWAY GUIDE, follows the new Essex Heritage route along the shore from Lynn to Newburyport, exploring the unique historic, cultural and natural resources along the way. Joel Brown will share how he came to write the BYWAY GUIDE, why the North Shore is different from other tourist destinations and how its future is changing. A Massachusetts native, Brown has lived in Newburyport for 15 years.
