Dover’s 400th Anniversary Committee (“Committee”) recently launched its 400 for 400 campaign, seeking 400 people to each contribute $400 to support Dover’s 400th birthday celebration in 2023. The campaign is off to a strong start having already received 18 donations from community-minded individuals and businesses.
The campaign was initiated by Dennis Ciotti who challenged others to match his donation. Since then, other philanthropists have stepped up, such as: Linda Hayden, Cathleen Beaudoin, Katherine Parker-Wright, Marilyn Follansbee, Tyler and Patricia Foss, Phillip and Donna Rinaldi, Lawrence David, Dennis and Darlene Shanahan, Thomas Allen, Bob Carrier, Walter King and Maria Soccorro Quisumbing-King, Karen Weston, and Alan Crowell.
The Committee would also like to celebrate the following corporate donors: The Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce, Bamford Investment Company LLC, McEneaney Survey Associates, Inc, and Dover Public Administrators Association.
“This event is only possible because of the continued support from our community,” said Kevin McEneaney, chair of the Dover 400 committee. “We’re so excited to celebrate the rich history of our town and make this a special occasion for all Dover residents.”
