Rhonda Corey of StellaDoggo announced that as of this week, her playcare facility is now the only licensed dog boarding facility in town that’s not tied to a training program. StellaDoggo, which is located in MGM Plaza at 1721 Main St., is licensed to have as many as 15 dogs on the premises at any given time. Corey is now accepting reservations for February vacation boarding. Learn more about StellaDoggo.

And Corey is hiring people who love to care for pets for late afternoon and evening positions.

Pushcart opened its new dining room and smoothie bar on Wednesday. As of yesterday at lunchtime, business was brisk and steady, with tables in the new addition full. Two young visitors enjoyed kid-size fruit smoothies from the new menu, below, which was made locally by Wicked Cornhole.

Wamesit Lanes is hosting an evening of fun, food and entertainment to raise money for SoldierOn and the Tewksbury Home Build on Sunday, March 12 beginning at 5:00 p.m. Entertainment includes Boston-based comedian Mike Donovan and a screening of Silent Dignity. There will be a raffle along with a live and silent auction.

Every dollar that is raised during the event will be doubled thanks to the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, which has partnered with the New England Patriots Foundation in a joint matching grant in support of the Gordon H. Mansfield Veterans Community, located in Tewksbury. Construction is set to begin in the spring, with a planned opening in spring 2024. Buy tickets or a lane here.
