I know of four people who are celebrating a little extra after the Fourth of July weekend.
The Sandpoint Lions Club has announced the winners of its annual raffle.
Doreen Balch won the grand prize John Deer Gator purchased by the Lions from Papé Machinery.
Mary McPherson won the second prize; a $2,000 shopping spree in Bonner County.
Tim Pulford won the third prize; two season passes to Schweitzer Mountain Resort for the 2015-2016 season.
Alan Barrett won the fourth prize; $1,000 cold, hard cash.
Congratulations everyone! And special thanks to the Lions for making our holiday weekend shine.
While we have you ...
... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
