December 16th was a fun evening as we presented the Lottery ticket basket to the lucky winner. Laura Eliason of Sturbridge was excited about her new ‘possible’ fortune and very appreciative of all the hard work Sturbridge Rotary does to support the local community and especially the scholarships we award to local students. The Lottery ticket basket is the major fundraiser for the Club. This is the fifth year that we spend three months selling 1,000 tickets and 100% of the profit funds our scholarship program and several other small local projects.
Also appearing at the meeting were the Tantasqua Choraleers to sing several Christmas carols. They are certainly a group of talented and dedicated young folks who really enjoy what they do. The songs were a great way to give us all Christmas spirit, appreciation for what we have, and a sense of pride in what we, as a Club, do for others.
