Club Fundraisers
Each year, the club holds the following fundraising events. (Most were cancelled during the coronavirus pandemic).
  1.     Nevada Ticket Sales. This event is on-going, and is the largest fundraiser operated by the club, bringing in several thousand dollars each year. We sell instant scratch tickets in the lobby of the Giant Tiger store on Coleman at Neely. We were able to restart this fundraiser in March 2022.
  2.     "Just Because" sale of roses. In October, we sell boxes of a dozen long-stem roses, delivering them to the customer's door. They are normally sold for $25 a box, and we usually manage to sell about 300 boxes. (We cancelled this project in 2022 and 2023 because it was too heavy a demand on the time of our limited number of members).
  3.     Women's Fair. We organize a Fair for women in November, usually held in the Carleton Place Arena. Income comes from table sponsorships, a silent auction and food services. We were able to hold this project in 2021, with a reduced number of tables and without the food service. In 2022, we were able to return to normal operation, including the food service and silent auction.
  4.     Mushroom Compost Sale. In late April we operate a sale of mushroom compost. We buy a large quantity of bulk compost from a local supplier, and arrange for teams from a local junior sports team to load it into bags holding about 30 Kg. It is sold on site; we are no longer able to deliver to people's homes. About half the profit is donated to the sports club, and the rest is available for other charities. We were able to restart this project in 2022, with the help of the Ringuette team, and in 2023 the Carleton Place Girls Hockey team did the packing.
Annual Mushroom Compost Sale - May 4th and 5th, 2024
 
This year's compost sale was held from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday May 4th, and from 9:00 am to noon on Sunday May 5th, and also on Saturday May 11th from 9:00 am to noon.
 
Bags of mushroom compost weighing about 15 Kg (33 lb) were sold for $10 each.
 
We are not able to do deliveries this year.
 
 
 
 
 

The 33rd Annual Lanark County Women's Fair was held on Saturday, November 5th, 2022 between 10AM and 4PM, upstairs in the Carleton Place Arena.  This is an opportunity for women to showcase their businesses, network with other women, and sell their products to the public.

Tables could be reserved at $60 each.

During the event the Rotary Club drew the winning ticket from their annual 50-50 ticket sale.  Tickets are $5 each and last year's winner took home over $937. 

See our Facebook page for more details.

The club held a "Spring Fling" event at the Carleton Place Legion, inviting members of other clubs in the area.

ROSE SALE

 
Roses were delivered during the weekend of November 7th, 2020.  We would like to offer our thanks to the many clients who ordered roses, and helped support local charities.
