Lottery Basket Winner!

The name of the winner of the basket with $1,000 worth of lottery tickets was pulled at our meeting on December 8th from a large container of ticket stubs.  Yes, we sold every single ticket that was printed!  The winning ticket was #730 purchased by a lucky lady from North Dighton, MA.  According to the code on the ticket, it was sold at the Sturbridge Harvest Festival in October.  President Larry immediately called the phone number on the ticket stub to give the winner the good news.  She was amazed because she said, “I never win anything!”  Unfortunately she is not able to attend one of our meetings to claim her prize so we will be getting the tickets to her and wish her the best of luck as she spends time scratching all those tickets.  She promises to let us know how much she wins.  Our sincere thanks go to everyone who bought a ticket for this fundraiser.  The proceeds from this event support the scholarships we award to Tantasqua seniors who are pursuing a college degree.  Thanks also to Rotarian Peter Zeh for organizing this annual fundraiser and to all the Sturbridge Rotarians who spent time working several shifts during the last few months to sell all 1,000 tickets!
