Year after year, the residents of Waverly and downtown stop into this little corner market asking:
" When will the Shamrocks be in ?" "I want my Shamrock" North Andover residents look forward to this Muscular Dystrophy fundraiser every year and can't wait to get their clover in the window !
According the MDA website nationwide this program had a record-breaking year in 2013, raising about $23.3 million for the MDA’s programs.
Programs include funding research, education, summer camps, and the clinical and other services the Muscular Dystrophy Association funds. Along with raising funds for the MDA, this program also helps to raise public awareness regarding the MDA, the organization’s services, and neuromuscular disease.

The Shamrocks are only $1.00 and a Gold Shamrock is $5.00. Have fun with this fundraiser, be creative and get one for your Mom, favorite teacher, your best friend or even your dog.
