Penny power wins at Heidelberg Church
Heidelberg Church’s Fellowship Hall was the scene of clinking pennies and a bounty of prizes as people attended the recent penny party.
Each person placed pennies, equivalent to the price of small prices being passed from person to person, were placed into a cup. In a second cup they placed a ticket with their number.
When the tray with the prizes and cups had made the rounds, caller Ashten Oswald, who has served as caller three times before, chose the winner.
As the prizes were relatively small most everyone went home with multiple prizes.
“There are more prizes than usual for kids,” Sharon Thompson said. “When I retire then I’ll play. More men are coming and are winning a lot today.”
She has a 4-1/2 year old grandson and would enjoy getting a prize for him.
On this day, she was the cashier for the food sales.
Linda Fisher sold tickets for a Chinese auction, and her husband, Brian was the runner for the penny party delivering prizes to their winners.
