Over the past few weeks, representatives from the Arrowhead Senior Center have gone from business to business amassing a list of possible prizes for their fundraising raffle to replace the center’s failing roof.

On Dec. 15, the center will draw names for 64 prizes, two of which amount to $500 each and a number of which are up to $100 in value, said the center’s president Ted Beaudoin.

Beaudoin said that due to years of neglect the senior center’s roof is in desperate need of fixing.

“We've had leaks since the roof was installed,” he said. “They patched it up a little here and there in a few places and where the actual water went down under the shingles, it sags.”

The center has had to deal with multiple leaks in recent memory and Beaudoin said it's gotten so bad that if it doesn’t get addressed the roof is at risk of caving in.

The center has also had a strain on the amount of volunteers it has been able to amass recently. The center currently doesn’t have a secretary.

But thanks to a small amount of dedicated volunteers, the list of prizes for the raffle is extensive.

Milton resident Karen Hathaway has done an incredible job getting together businesses and selling tickets, Beaudoin said.

To buy a raffle ticket and support the center, patrons can get in touch with Beaudoin at Beaudoin’s Farm Stand at 262 Middle Rd in Milton or by calling him at (802) 893-4083. You can also reach out to Karen Hathaway, Beaudoin said.

Tickets are $1 each or six tickets for $5.
