The Brad Anderson Recognition Committee's (BARC) first fundraising project has begun. Tickets can now be purchased to win a $100 CITCO gas card with a donation of $2 for one ticket or $5 for three tickets.
The Brad Anderson Recognition Committee is a non-for-profit group with a goal to erect bronze statues of world renown cartoonist Brad Anderson and his famous creation Marmaduke. Anderson is a native of the Brocton/Portland area, graduated from Brocton Central School and created Marmaduke during the time he lived in the area.
