Winners Are Chosen for the Playhouse Raffle
Rotary Has a Double Header Weekend
Oct 02, 2011
Finally, a winning double header weekend for Rotary. After a long tornado warning induced delay, the Playhouse winning ticket was drawn and the playhouse was delivered –all within a 24-hour period.
The Raffle Ticket Drawing happened under sunny skies and seemingly late brusque autumn conditions at the Dexter Apple Daze celebration. Paul Cousins was our Master of Ceremony, and spoke to the shivering, but plentiful, crowd about the work Rotary does for the greater Dexter Community. Included in his speech was our DHS Scholarship program, our community garden efforts delivered to Faith in Action, and other Faith in Action Program support. In addition to these services, he also spoke of our Ronald McDonald dinners, our supporting of library and community events, and numerous other social safety net activities.
The winning ticket belonged to Renee and Glen Wiczorek of Dexter, MI.
The second part of the double-header was the quickly-arranged delivery of the Playhouse to the Wiczoreks. The delivery was scheduled for late Sunday afternoon. The Rotary delivery crew consisted of Jim Brady, Jeff Brown, Paul Cousins, Steve Feinman, and Kark Fink, who all assembled at 4 p.m. to make the delivery.
As the drive to the delivery got underway, Glen Wiczorek and his father were frantically clearing underbrush and vegetation from the Playhouse's future home. Lindsey Wiczorek, the soon-to-be-playhouse-occupant, saw her dad and graddad working, but wasn't sure what the sudden flurry of activity was about. It wasn't until Jim Brady's truck with the trailer transporting the Playhouse pulled into her backyard that Lindsey's mom told her that they had won the Playhouse.
The installation went fairly easily due to Jim Brady's pinpoint trailer-handling skills and the crew's ability to avoid injury at all costs.
