2024 Rotary Lottery Calendars for sale!
This year the calendar was inspired by the private photo collection of Mike Colella. The calendar focuses on historic businesses, economic boom, and the melting pot of people who embodied New Castle. Featured are Billy Glenn, New Castle Savings and Trust, Cooper and Butler, Rohrer’s Gun Store, and more. Supplemental photos were provided by the Lawrence County Historical Society.
The calendar cost is $20 and makes a fantastic holiday gift. All proceeds benefit the Rotary Club of New Castle initiatives.
Mike Colella, a 1975 graduate of New Castle High School, grew up in an Italian American family and most people would be familiar with his father’s store, Colella Market, located in Mahoningtown for 60 years before it’s closing. With a love for history and antiques spanning 50 years, he began collecting photographs of New Castle/Lawrence County, most no one had ever seen. Mike and his wife of 42 years, Roberta, reside in New Castle and is still an avid collector.
The calendars are numbered from 000-999 and based on the PA official three-digit evening Lottery number. 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.
