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.
