Townsfolk begin to settle in preparation of the lottery. Elders and adults of the village begin the planning of the lottery drawing. Children start collecting large rocks for the event.
Mr. Summers makes the slips for the lottery drawing and puts them in a small black box. After the box is found, families begin to gather at the location and attendance is taken. Some families complain about the tradition.
All the families draw to find out who got the slip. It turns out bill Hutchinson got the slip. Bill finds his family to proceed with the next drawing.
All of the Hutchinson's gather in one spot and take turns opening the box to reveal their slip. Townsfolk began to chatter about who they hope weren't chosen. Tessie Hutchinson reveals she received the next slip.
The citizen collect the stones from the children, and prepare the ceremony. Tessie is outraged that she and her family were even chosen, and begins complaining. While all of this is happening citizen begin lobbing rocks of all sizes towards Tessie.
After Tessie's death, the tradition was completed. The ceremony was fulfilled, and the lottery was over. And hopefully from their sacrifice will come a successful year of farming.
