Alton Centennial Rotary Paint A Butterfly Contest/Fundraiser in full swing

This summer’s Alton Centennial Rotary Paint a Butterfly Contest/ Fundraiser is in full swing!  All proceeds from this Contest/Fundraiser will benefit Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice.  Purchase  your butterfly by Monday, August 7th at the Profile Bank on Main Street in Alton, NH (a personal entry is $25 and an entry with a sponsor is $75). Butterflies should be treated with a coat or two of latex paint or Gesso for the best results.  Once treated paint or adorn your butterfly in your own unique way (gluing, and/or attaching items such as plastic flowers, beads, sparkles, metals, glass ceramics, cloth and more is acceptable and you may do so beyond the outside dimensions of the butterfly).  All entries must be returned to the Alton Profile Bank by Monday, August 14th.   The culmination of this contest/fundraiser will be on August 19th at the Butterflies in the Park Bash from 12 -3 pm at B&M Railroad Park in Alton.  All of the butterflies will be judged and awards will be given.  Cake & Ice cream will be served as well.  You can pick up your butterfly after the event at 3:30 pm, or let them know when you arrive for the event that they can auction it off to benefit the Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice.
