Woburn Rotary Club Members enjoying 2016 holiday party.The 2016 Woburn Rotary Holiday Party and Raffle was a great success!
For the second year, a holiday raffle was the highlight of the club's holiday party. Club members raised over $3,000 to support our charitable work by selling $50 raffle tickets that gave people a chance to win a package of local restaurant gift certificates or the grand prize of $1,000 cash. Congrats to our own Richard Archambault for being the lucky winner of that big prize!
In addition to drawing the raffle prize winners, we also enjoyed a Yankee Swap. We set a $10 limit on gifts, to concentrate resources on the raffle, and encouraged creativity. The membership certainly came through on that front! Thanks to member Susan Hartmere for initiating and leading the Yankee Swap activity.
The Holiday Party was held at the Woburn Elks Lodge, which has just recently been chosen as our club's new regular meeting venue.
