2021 Rotary Club of New Castle’s Lottery Calendar
The Rotary Club* of New Castle is selling its annual fundraiser calendar. The theme is “Then and Now.” Each month features a different historic New Castle mansion or home and a smaller photo of what is located on the site using photographs from our historical society’s collection.
Each calendar has a 3 digit number. If your calendar number matches the PA official “Pick 3” evening Lottery number, you win. All numbers are played straight as drawn and daily awards are $25.00, except on five bonus days where winners receive between $100 and $500.
The calendars make great holiday gifts. Supplies are limited and have sold out for the last two years.
*Proceeds from sales go to the New Castle Rotary as part of their annual fundraiser. Eighty percent is disbursed back into our community while twenty percent goes to the Rotary District, National, and International projects.
Below we list some of our previous time-limited “new products”)
2015 CALENDAR WOMEN OF LAWRENCE COUNTY – No longer available
The Women of Lawrence County provided critical and significant roles in the history of our county. Our 2015 Calendar features sepia and black & white historical photos from 1880-1942.
Our cover photo (Inspecting Shells at United Engineering 1942) has a mesmerizing feel to it. The style is Art Deco and looks like a Hollywood screen set even though it is a real photo of an actual worker with real products.
In addition to a feature photo, each month includes information about historical dates significant to Lawrence County’s history. For example: February 7, 1907 (First Warner Theater “The Cascade Palace” opens on South Mill Street, New Castle).
Feature photos by month include: January: Teachers New Castle School System circa 1880s / February: Shenango Valley Hospital nurses’ training class of 1906 / March: Inspecting shells at United Engineering 1942 (cover photo) / April: Lawrence County Chapter of the American Red Cross – taking care of babies & patients / May: Girls working Circle Shears Shenango Works Tin Mill 1917 / June: “Bloomer Girls” at the Tin Mill 1917 / July: New Castle City Policewoman Minnie McKibben surrounded by male colleagues / August: Almira Martin – founder of the Almira Home / September: “Bloomer Girls” Shenango Works Tin Mill 1917 / October: Margaret L. Henry – founder of the Margaret L. Henry Home (orphanage) / November: Harriet J. Eckels, US Army Nurse – WWI / December: Employees of the YWCA /
