Plymouth Rotary Holds 64th Annual Penny Sale
 
            Each year, the Plymouth Rotary holds its popular Penny Sale fund-raiser in support of scholarships for Plymouth Regional High School students.  This year, the 64th Annual Penny Sale will be held on Saturday, November 1st starting at 7 PM at the Plymouth Regional High School, and entry to the event is free. 
 
            Hundreds of local businesses generously donate prizes for the evening event. Prizes range from dining gift certificates, to vaccinations for pets, to ski passes and savings bonds.  Each item becomes part of a list of 50 prizes which are raffled off individually to the people who hold raffle tickets for that list. Raffle tickets may be purchased for 50 cents, thus the name “Penny Sale,” with each raffle ticket offering the holder the potential for up to 50 chances to win in that round.  Five lists of 50 prizes are offered, with the last one containing prizes which are worth at least $50 each.  Tension is high in the hall as tickets are drawn and the lucky winners are determined. 
 
            Four grand prizes will also be given away to lucky ticket holders:  The first grand prize is a one week stay donated by Cold Spring Resort valued at $1,000; the second prize is $500 cash donated by Community Guaranty Savings Bank and Bridgewater Power Company; the third prize is 100 gallons of home heating oil donated by Dead River Company; and a $200 “Shop Local” shopping spree donated by Venture Print Unlimited, Inc.
 
            Fun is the order of business throughout the evening, as Rotarians sell “lucky” tickets to their favorite customers and folks in the audience heckle their hosts.  And there are always surprises, too.  Last year, more than 40 turkeys were given away as additional prizes to lucky ticket holders. You can bet that the Rotarians will have some tricks up their sleeves this year, too, with student support from the high school, and a live DJ providing musical entertainment throughout the evening.   
 
            The Penny Sale is Plymouth Rotary’s way of helping local young people prepare for the challenges that lay ahead, through further education.  Scholarships are offered to traditional 4-year college-bound students, to students entering vocational/technical training, and to students returning to school after work experiences. 
           
            Rotarians urge their friends and neighbors to set aside the time to enjoy a fun evening supporting a great cause.   Come as a family, come as a group, or just come; it’s guaranteed to be the best show in town.
