WHAV’s Community Spotlight is turning its microphones to those civic and charitable organizations that make Greater Haverhill a wonderful place to live.

Beginning in 2005 as a “community visioning” initiative sponsored by the Greater Haverhill Foundation and the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce, Team Haverhill emerged in 2006 as its own organization. With the purpose of making Haverhill a “better place to live, work and play,” officers were elected, and the group was organized into a self-directing association.

Team Haverhill’s signature events, River Ruckus and Possible Dreams, are annual events planning and celebrating Haverhill’s progress. The River Ruckus festival features a day of live music, classic cars, local food and drinks, raffle and a conclusion with fireworks. Possible Dreams is a brainstorming session that provides community conversation, fostering new connections and evoking community aspirations.
