Ludlow Rotary prepares for April 27 Penny Sale

A past Penny Sale held by the Ludlow Rotary with Tom Harris presiding.

The final preparations are in place for the Ludlow Rotary Club’s 66th Annual Penny Sale to be held at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 27 in the Black River High School auditorium, 43 Main St. in Ludlow.

Admission is free, and the doors open at 5 p.m. The first 85 kids will receive a free gift.

The Penny Sale is one of the largest fundraisers undertaken by the club, which is celebrating its 97th anniversary this year.

Proceeds are used for college scholarships awarded to high school students living in Cavendish, Ludlow, Plymouth and Mt. Holly. They are also used to support local school events and community projects, such as Cavendish/Proctorsville Greven Field, Okemo Valley TV, Black River Valley Senior Center, Apple Blossom Cotillion, Mountainside House, Black River Academy Museum, Black River Good Neighbor Services and the Rotary International Youth Exchange program.

More than 400 prizes with a total value greater than $25,000 have been donated by area businesses. The Ludlow Rotary Club is grateful for their generosity and support. Prizes include bicycles, ski passes, gift certificates to local restaurants, power tools, Red Sox tickets, home maintenance items, theater tickets, gas cards, fire safety items, propane grill cylinders, garden tools, maple products and the all-time favorite – cash.

The cash raffle of more than $1,000 is always exciting. One does not need to be present to win; however, an additional $25 is added if the ticket holder is in the house. Rotarians will be selling raffle tickets at various locations in Ludlow on weekend afternoons from now until April 27. The cost is $2 each or 3 tickets for $5.

Refreshments will be available to purchase. Prize winners can visit the swap table if they are interested in exchanging prizes with other winners.
