Turkey raffle in West Pawlet

T he annual West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department Turkey Raffle is coming up Friday, Nov. 22, at 7 p.m. at the West Pawlet firehouse.

The department invites area community members to attend and learn how to purchase a playing card to participate. Playing cards are $ .50 each or 3 for $1. The cards will enable 27 lucky winners to each win a turkey with a bag of potatoes.

“Take a chance – come join the fun,” organizers said.

All are welcome and encouraged to attend. There will be free refreshments, including coffee, donuts, soda and water available.

Additionally, tickets are currently on sale from the fire department for four grand prizes, which are being raffled by the department. These include: First, a Remington Model 7600 Pump Rifle, or $400 cash; second, binoculars; third, $100 cash and fourth, a turkey meal with fixins.

Raffle tickets for the grand prizes are $1 each and 8 for $5. Participants are encouraged to get their tickets soon for a chance to win. Winners will be announced at the Turkey Raffle event, and they need not be present to win.

Ticket proceeds are for support of the fire department’s equipment and training needs. The West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department is a designated non-profit I.R.S. Tax-deductible organization. Donations are greatly appreciated and new members are always welcome.
