We are all getting old and forgetful down this way and our penny collections are usually forgotten after two meetings! Master Gary Nickerson had an idea. On one of his trips to our local Bangor Savings Bank, he asked the bank if he could get a dozen of their piggy banks. Our next meeting all our members were given a piggy bank to take home and fill so we will have the best penny collection ever (as long as we remember to bring them to the meeting)!
A great idea with little fuss and lots of smiles. We all look forward to piggy bank day!
Note: Pennies collected are brought to State Convention every year and donated to a worthy cause.
