FARMINGTON – The third annual Price is Right game will return at 7 p.m. Friday, March 11, to Mt. Blue High School.

Savvy contestants may guess the prices of top merchandise and win prizes, accompanied by enthusiastic audience participation in one of the Farmington Rotary Club’s major fund-raisers of the year.

Local attorney Paul Mills, in vintage costume, will again bring his wit to the stage as Farmington’s own version of TV game show host, Bob Barker. This year he will be joined by Roger Lambert of Strong as the announcer.

“This is always a good time and Roger is one of the more colorful speakers in Franklin County,” Mills said. “It is a fun event because the contestants’ success is based on their skill and not their luck. And its popularity is demonstrated by the increasing attendance every year.”

The show will feature take-offs of familiar Price is Right games such as Plinko, the Yodeler, the ring toss, Beat-the-Clock, Punch-Out and the final Wheel of Chance, with Mills’ “girls and guys” in formal wear displaying the merchandise.

Last year’s showcase was a complete kitchen appliance package provided by CJ’s Appliances of Farmington, but event organizers, Rotarians Clayton and Joyce King, warn that the prizes this year, all provided by area merchants, will be different.

Tickets are $8 and $10 at the door and are available at Mickey’s Hallmark on Main Street or from any Rotarian.

The Farmington Rotary Club last year raised $12,000 to help local organizations and individuals in need as well to aid humanitarian projects such as those suffering from the recent Indian Ocean tsunami, from famine in Africa and to prevent polio worldwide.

Rotary is a nonpolitical, nonreligious service organization with approximately 1.2 million members in more than 31,000 Rotary clubs in more than 160 countries. For more information about joining the Farmington Rotary, contact club president Buzz Davis at 778-4275.
