The Carroll County carnival and fire department fund raising season gets started this Thursday when the Westminster Fire Engine and Hose Co. No. 1 holds its annual Big Money Raffle.
In addition to eight cash drawings there will be plenty of fried chicken, hot dogs, and all the traditional summer picnic delights available as friends, family, and community will gather to fill the engine bays at the fire station at 28 John Street in Westminster in what has become an annual tradition in Carroll County.
Last year the fire company gave away $20,950 at the event. The first prize was $15,000; among a total of eight prizes raffled off – all for a $20.00 ticket.
The winners for the annual raffle last year were: First Prize went to Dawn Duff, second prize to Debbie Reese, third prize to Don Burkward, fourth prize to Suzanne Schreuer, fifth prize to Julia Kimsey, sixth prize to Henry Ruhlman, seventh prize to Truman Simms, and eighth prize to Vicki Munshaur.
A press release from the Westminster volunteer fire department said, “The officers and members of the Westminster Fire Department congratulate all the winners and thank everyone that supported the annual raffle and attended the function at the Fire Station on Thursday night. Without your support the fire department would not be able to continue to provide the service community.”
