Member of the Rotary Club of Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills are now selling Nevada tickets as well as our annual 50-50 tickets to raise funds for local charities.  Nevada tickets are also known as 'break open tickets' are paper tickets that offer a chance to win instant prizes of up to $100 in cash.  You win if you tear open the perforated covers on your ticket and reveal a winning combination of symbols - for example if your ticket reveals 3 cherry symbols then you win $1.  Nevada tickets cost 50 cents each and in accordance with Ontario rules you need to open the tickets in front of the seller and all proceeds will go to local charities.  
Tickets for the Rotary's annual 50-50 tickets are also on sale now.  These tickets cost $5 each and last year's winner took home over $2000!  The 50-50 ticket draw will be held at the Women's fair (see the next story) on 2 November at the Carleton Place Arena (upstairs).  You do not have to be present to win!
Both the Nevada and the 50-50 tickets are being sold at the Giant Tiger store at 320 Coleman St, Carleton Place between 9 AM and 8 PM on Thursdays and Fridays. 
The people selling the tickets are a combination of Rotary members and friends of Rotary who also belong to the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital auxiliary.  These people volunteer their time to sell the tickets, oversee people opening their tickets, and hand out prizes.  So, the next time you enter the Giant Tiger store and see that table please stop and buy a few tickets!  You can also ask the volunteers on duty there for information about joining the Rotary club. 
The Rotary Club of Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills would like to thank Giant Tiger for donating space for the table and Bradda Printing for donating the 50-50 ticket printing.

The 31st Annual Lanark County Women's Fair and Psychic Offerings event will be held Saturday, November 2nd 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.

This year's event is running the fair as part of a multi-year commitment to provide $5,000 per year to the Lanark County Interval House (LCIH). LCIH is the only shelter and dedicated support service in Lanark County for women who are victims of abuse.   They offer a 24-hour help line at 1-800-267-7946.

If you would like to reserve a table for this year's event please email the organizers at womensfairinfo@gmail.com to request an application form.  Tables are $55 each and over half are already sold!  

During the event the Rotary Club will draw the winning ticket from their annual 50-50 ticket sale.  These tickets are $5 each and last year's winner took home over $2000!  If you would like to purchase a ticket you can visit the Rotary ticket sale table during Summer Fest (by Century 21) or at the Carleton Place Giant Tiger every Thursday and Friday between 9AM and 8PM.
