PLYMOUTH — Plymouth Rotary is gearing up for its 63rd Annual Penny Sale being conducted on Saturday, November 2 at 7 p.m. at Plymouth Regional High School. The event draws over 500 fans and friends from all around the state who look forward to this evening of games of chance, several grand prize raffles, food, and music.
This fun-filled family event is sponsored by premiere event sponsor, Bank of New Hampshire with additional support from New Hampshire Electric Co-op, Meredith Village Savings Bank, Community Guaranty Savings Bank, Mayhew Funeral Homes and Crematorium, Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank, Bridgewater Power Company, and Construx, Inc.
Prizes for the event range from dining gift certificates, vaccinations for pets, ski passes, a kitchen sink and even dental work. 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. Tickets may be purchased for 50 cents. Five rounds of lists of 50 prizes are offered, with the last round containing prizes worth $50 each or more.
Four grand prizes will also be awarded to the lucky ticket holders of the grand prize raffle drawing. Prizes include $500 cash donated by Community Guaranty Savings Bank and Bridgewater Power Company; 100 gallons of home heating oil donated by Dead River Company; and a $200 shopping spree offered by Hannaford Bros. Co. and CMD Bookkeeping.
The Penny Sale is Plymouth Rotary's way of helping local students prepare for the challenges that lay ahead as they approach further education after high school. The Plymouth Rotarians annually offer scholarships to assist deserving students as they seek out traditional 4-year colleges, vocational/technical training, or return to school after work experiences. The Plymouth Rotary also raises money to support local non-profits and other community development initiatives.
