Donations Needed for Penny Social
    In conjunction with a soon to be announced Gerry special event, we will be holding a Penny Social. If you have never been to a New England Penny Social, this is a chance for you to see why they are so enduring. A Penny Social is a big series of raffles. You buy tickets at the door and use them to take a chance to win items that you like. All tickets are put in a basket and the winning ticket is pulled at random. There are multiple drawings throughout the event.

    We are asking members and community businesses alike to donate items for the Penny Social. While we’ll be asking businesses to donate items such as gift certificates, services, or merchandise. we’re also looking for lots of other items to be raffled off during the event. This is where you come in. Give your regifts, your gently used, and unwanted new items, donate your services (lobsters, car wash or detailing, etc.)  Donations may range from toys, games, glassware, baked goods, lottery tickets, gift baskets, knick knacks, services, and all sorts of home and yard items. You may donate new or “gently used” items.  Please no clothing or furniture. Books, bags of snacks (chips, popcorn, etc.), DVDs, CDs, joke items are all acceptable.

    Details will be forthcoming on the event itself as well as the Penny Social, but we need your help in securing the items to be used for prizes. Penny Socials are popular, well attended, and fun for everyone.
    For more information or to make donations of new or "gently used" items please call Kathy Tankersley Bernier at 978-741-4712/ or
Joan DaSilva 978-491-7638.
