Last chance to enter Lions’ grocery draw


A handful of tickets are still available as the Fort Frances Lions Club’s “Groceries for a Year” raffle wraps up with the prize-winning draw Saturday at 1 p.m. at Safeway.
“It’s actually been going really, really well,” said club member Jeannette Roth, who is chairing the fundraiser.
The prize itself—$5,200 worth of groceries for the year—has been a big reason why the tickets have been selling, she noted.
“It doesn’t matter about the recession,” she remarked. “Everybody needs food.”
As well, the raffle has garnered a “phenomenal amount of support” from local businesses who have helped out by selling tickets, Roth added.
Many just “took it and ran with it,” she enthused.
Tickets, which cost $5 each, are on sale today and tomorrow at Wal-Mart, Roth noted, with Lions Club members to be at Safeway all Saturday morning to sell any remaining tickets before the draw.
After the draw, cake and refreshments will be provided by Safeway.
