Press Release

                             56th ANNUAL LUDLOW ROTARY CLUB PENNY SALE

            The Ludlow Rotary Club is at it again.  The final stages are in place for the 56th Annual Penny Sale.  This annual event will be held on Saturday, April 28, 2012, at the Black River High School auditorium in Ludlow.  The Penny Sale starts at 6:00 p.m. and admission is free!

            The Penny Sale is currently one of the largest fundraisers undertaken by the Ludlow Rotary Club.  The proceeds are used for college scholarships for area high school students living in Cavendish, Ludlow, Plymouth and Mt. Holly.   In addition to the scholarships the proceeds are used for local school events and community projects such as the Cavendish/Proctorsville Greven Field, LPC-TV, Black River Valley Senior Center, Apple Blossom Cotillion, Mountainside House, Black River Museum, Black River Good Neighbors, the Rotary International Youth Exchange program as well as other worthy causes.
            The prize list is long.  Over 400 prizes totaling more than $22,000 in value will be given away during the evening!  To name just a few of the donated prizes: bicycles, ski passes, local restaurant gift certificates, power tools, Red Sox tickets, home maintenance items, theatre tickets, gas cards, fire safety items, propane grill cylinders, garden tools, maple products and the all-time favorite – cash!  We will also have a swap table available for those of you who may want to swap your prize with another winner.

            Our club is celebrating its 85th Anniversary this year and we will be giving away to the first 85 kids a free gift!  Come help celebrate our 85 years of community and international service!

            Our cash raffle of more than $1000.00 is always exciting.   You do not need to be present to win the cash raffle but an additional $25.00 will be added to the winning ticket if present.  Rotarians will be out and about selling raffle tickets at Shaw’s in Ludlow on weekend afternoons from now until the evening of the Penny Sale.  Raffle tickets are $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00.

             The prizes for the Penny Sale have been donated by area businesses and the Ludlow Rotary Club is grateful for their generosity.  Mark your calendars now for Saturday, April 28, 6:00 p.m.  the Black River High School auditorium in Ludlow.  Doors open at 5:00 p.m.  Refreshments will be available through the Black River High School Project Graduation.

            For some, this “Mud Season Event” is an annual tradition.  So if this is your first Penny Sale or your 56th, we hope to see you for this fun-filled evening.  Again, a special thank you to all the businesses for your generous donations and participation.  If you have any questions, please contact Debra Norton at 226-7297 or Kim Lampert at 228-4000.  Remember, admission is FREE!
