Oars become art in Woman’s Club fundraiser

Feb 20, 2020

MARION — The Sippican Woman’s Club will start a new fundraiser this summer. 

The effort is called Oars for Scholars. Students and local artists will paint oars or paddles to be auctioned off. In the summer, these oars will be displayed around Marion, and a silent auction will ensue.

The club has had a yearly focus on raising money for scholarships since 1947. The Holiday House Tour is always the main event to raise money.

To begin this project, the students of the Art Club of Old Rochester Regional High School, under the enthusiastic direction of art teacher Kate Butler, have chosen their oar or paddle. 

The Sippican Woman’s Club is still collecting donations of oars or paddles for the project. To arrange for a Woman’s Club member to pick up a donation, contact info@sippicanwomansclub.org.
