MARLBOROUGH – After being held virtually last year, a popular holiday tradition returned in person on Nov. 20. The Marlborough Rotary Club hosted its 39th annual Turkey Shoot in the cafeteria at Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School.
Rotarians and businesses donated over 200 raffle items. Among the prizes were Amazon Echo devices and Fire tablets, handmade jewelry, hotel stays, home appliances, restaurant gift cards, sports game tickets and many turkey baskets with all the fixings.
A separate round of raffles offered children’s prizes.
Refreshment sales raised additional funds. Proceeds from the fundraiser help support the club’s ongoing charitable endeavors.
A message in the event program from the club’s President Aaron Aykanian read in part, “This is a very special year for us as we are elated to be back in person for the Turkey Shoot, but we are also about to celebrate our club’s 100th year of service!”
