PLYMOUTH — The 64th Annual Penny Sale will be held on Saturday, November 1 starting at 7 p.m. at the Plymouth Regional High School, and entry to the event is free.
Hundreds of local businesses donate prizes for the 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.
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.
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.

HOLDERNESS — Opening November 4th and running through December 13th, "Evolving Tradition," a show featuring the work of ceramic artist Yoshinori Hagiwara will be on view at the Edwards Art Gallery at the Holderness School.
Hagiwara was born in 1974 as the fifth generation of the Hagiwara workshop and is part of a tradition that includes last year's exhibitor and renowned ceramic artist, Ken Matsuzaki. The opening reception is on November 4th from 6:30 – 8 pm
Hagiwara is represented by the Pucker Gallery in Boston, MA and it is the result of their close relationship with Holderness School that this exhibit is made possible. The Pucker Gallery's audio tour describes Hagiwara's ceramics as representing "a kind of enigma. They are at once sleek and sophisticated, yet many of them hearken back to the atmosphere of works made in the distant past of potters of Europe or Asia." Although Hagiwara is a fifth generation potter, he adds his own distinct style; his shapes are functional, and yet the elegance of his glazes makes them seem more refined.
Hagiwara's works are part of the public collection at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Israel Museum, the Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, and the Tikotin Museum of Art, Haifa, Israel, among others.
