On May 1, the traditional date for the running of the Kentucky Derby, the Manchester-Essex Rotary Club drew the winners of their 2nd annual Run for the Roses raffle. The three cash prize winners are: first place, $7,500 to Marty Flood, second place, $1,500 to Marcella Flammia and third place, $1,000 to Pat Rhoads. Our Derby Day hat contest winner of a dozen roses and a bottle of Kentucky Bourbon is Caroline Carlson.
Caroline Carlson's 95 year old mother whose hat was the winning submission.
M-E Rotarians wish to thank the many people who purchased a ticket. The proceeds will allow us to continue our mission to give back to the community in the form of scholarships, food security, civic projects such as the Essex ball field, and support to many individual non-profit organizations on Cape Ann.
We wish to thank our sponsors, Anthony & Dodge Certified Public Accountants, DesRosiers & Tierney, LLC Attorneys at Law, Farms Veterinary Clinic, Logue Insurance Agency, Leslie S. Ray Insurance Agency, Robert Lipkowitz Dentistry, The Open Door, Manchester Cricket.
