Five other names were drawn prior to Nelson, but were not present to collect the top prize. Shelley Haggerty, Jack Hoeke, Debb Sime, Heather Zinter and Jane Davis all will receive $100.
“The drawing went very well,” stated Milbank Area Chamber of Commerce director Connie Larson. “It was really nice that we had six winners. It felt good to spread the money around.”
The next drawing will take place Saturday, December 5, at 2 p.m. “Remember you need to be present in a participating business to be a winner,” noted Larson.
Larson also reminds community members to nominate their neighbor for the annual holiday lighting contest. “Instead of people entering the contest for themselves, nominate your neighbor to win prizes,” she stated. Winners of the lighting contest will be announced each week with the winners receiving $50 in Ol’ Mill Bucks. Winners will be announced each Monday beginning December 7, with the last winner named December 21. To nominate your neighbor, contact the chamber office at 605-432-6656 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
