Chester Rotary Holds Annual Penny Sale Sept. 12

Submitted by the Chester Rotary

You will find a reasonably priced playhouse at the live auction that will be part of the 45th annual Penny Sale and Silent Auction presented by the Chester Rotary Club. The four foot by eight foot by six foot high wooden playhouse was built and donated by the River Valley Technical Center of Springfield, Vermont. It was constructed by the students of the school under the direction of Erin Hunter, Program Instructor, Carpentry Program.

The Penny Sale will be held on September 12, 2009 at the Green Mountain Union High School in Chester, Vermont. This year, the Penny Sale will feature children's toy prizes with a special sale starting at 6:30 PM for the kids. At that time, a review of the Silent Auction items will also start. The playhouse will be part of a live auction and may be bid on that evening. You can view the playhouse prior to the day of the Penny Sale at Chester Bookworm at 330 Main Street in Chester. It will also be displayed at the high school the night of the Penny Sale.

The Penny Sale itself will start promptly at 7 p.m. with the drawing of the first prize ticket. There will be ticket sales from Rotarians throughout the auditorium for the Children's Toy special series and for the three prize series to follow. The live auction will be part of one of the Penny Sale series.

Ticket prices for the Children's Toy series are 4 for $1. Tickets for the remaining three Penny Sale series are one for $1, six for $5, 12 for $10 and 24 for $20. Also, don't forget our 50/50 Raffle with a guaranteed $500.00 minimum to the winning ticket holder. Raffle tickets sell for one for $1 and six for $5.

They can be bought from any Rotarian and at several locations around town.
