 The Bristol Rotary Club Penny Sale was held on August 12th at Bristol High School, and accord- ing to Leslie Dion, the incoming president for the Bristol Rotary Club and the Director of the Tapply-Thompson Community Center, it was a smashing success! For those who aren’t familiar with how the penny sale works, the club has an extensive list of companies in the area where each Rotarian will take a list of different busi- nesses and get prizes from them to use during the fun-filled event. With the three rounds and the
silent auction, the Rotary Club had about three hundred and fifty prizes to give away.
The main goal was to raise money for the Bristol Rotary Club’s school scholarships and Dion told me last month that they have donated about eight to ten thousand dollars and they were aiming to do it again this year. Well, they certainly succeeded be- cause they raised over nine thou- sand dollars from the earnings on August 12th. There were about fifty items for the silent auction, which was a record number of items for their silent auction, and
those prizes sure did get picked up quickly. Well, who wouldn’t want a gift card for a lovely bed and breakfast or an Eco tour?
There were quite a few fantastic grand prizes for the lucky winners this year. Thanks to Nancy Con- ner, there was a $100 Google Play card that a lot of people were gun- ning for. The Mayhew Program were gracious donors of a picnic table, and Morrison Construc- tion donated $100 in cash. The Dead River Company donated 125 gallons of fuel oil for a lucky winner, and Newfound Properties supplied 100 scratch tickets. And finally, there was a $100 Experi- ence Newfound gift card donated
by TD Bank.
Dion told me that the whole
night went exceptionally well. There were about 150-200 people in attendance, which made for a fun night! It was a great commu- nity-building event where friends and family could just come, enjoy themselves and try to win some awesome prizes.
This night would not have hap- pened without the endless support of the Bristol Rotary Club and the fantastic businesses. Dion in- formed me that there are many new Rotarians in the club this year, and they did a tremendous job of going out to the companies and bringing back all of these won-
derful prizes. All of the Rotarians demonstrated their dedication to the club and the Penny Sale with their ongoing work and support to put on a successful evening. “I also wanted to give a shout-out to all of the participating businesses for their support and generosity. They have been absolutely incred- ible, and it is just outstanding to see how they always show up and help us with so much,” Dion said. Overall, the penny sale was a fun and rewarding night where people could come and hang out while supporting the community. Folks should start preparing for next year; there might be some even more excellent prizes!
