Vergennes Rotary Club promotes two Holiday Programs to help the Community

This holiday season the Vergennes Area Rotary Club is promoting two programs to brighten up the community with lights and action! First, we are challenging both the Vergennes home and business owners to brighten up their home and store fronts with decorations that will not only light up the city but the faces of young and old alike. Everyone in the ‘Little City’ is invited to participate in this holiday decorating contest. There will be one winner from each category chosen. Judging will be conducted Sat. December 22nd. Winners will be notified and prizes given for the best of show. The business winner will receive a $100 donation to a charity of their choice. The private residence winner will receive a $50 of Vergennes Green $. Don’t miss out on the fun. Entrants must register to enter. Simply email or call: ; 877-2134 with your name and address. Good Luck!

Their second program promotes ‘neighbors helping neighbors’. This drive is an effort to raise funds to help some of the needier families in our area enjoy a bountiful holiday dinner. Rotary Club members will be having a holiday raffle giving away 17 great gifts, including a kindle fire, the newest American girl doll, child’s John Deere tractor farm set, toy barns w/animals to name just a few! Gifts are on display at Classic Stitching on Main St. Vergennes. All the proceeds will go directly to the program. Buy some chances and support your neighbor.
