In need of stick draw prizes for Duckie Race/Chicken BBQ on Aug 4th…..

One component of the fund raising at the Club’s August 4th Chicken BBQ / Duckie Race is the popular stick draw. So as to have a positive response regarding that game of chance the Club needs prizes for the stick purchasers to win.
At the Club’s July 9 Executive meeting the decision was made to ask all members (and others) to donate prizes to assist the success of the stick draws. The Executive’s request was for all members to donate something worth $5.00 or more and for that something to be of a quality to attract participants to purchase the numbered sticks. Along that same thought, if we all check what is stored within corners or at the back of closets in our homes I am certain that there are items that would serve quite well for prizes.
The other thought was for those who have business connections — or be willing to ask businesses — to seek promotional prizes from those business. The prizes should be of value to entice stick purchases. For example, during the recent ExxonMobil mock disaster exercise at the Club, ExxonMobil gave the Club two collapsible concert chairs that each retail in the area of $25.00 — two nice prizes for two lucky draw winners. We are not saying all prizes must be of such value, just to have winnings that will entice people to participate. Councillor MacPherson has already consented to providing some prizes both from his business and from the Municipality of the District of Guysborough.
Any prizes that you can provide may be left with any of the Club’s Executive by July 31: Paula Dobson, Holly Nahrebecky, Kay Chisholm, Phil O’Regan, Lois MacDonald, Brian Farrell and yours truly.
Please respond to the prizes request in a positive manner because your assistance is needed and — as always — will be sincerely appreciated.
