CHRISTMAS RAFFLE

Thank you for supporting the parish bazaar in so many ways.  If you haven't purchased or sold raffle tickets, books of 12 are still available.  The cost of 3 for $5.00 or a book for $20.00 gives you a chance to win a 1st Prize of $350.00 cash, 2nd Prize of Canucks Hockey Tickets for 2 and a 3rd Prize of a gourmet gift basket with turkey certificate.  If you have monies and stubs to return, please give them to Judy Nicholson as soon as possible.  This helps with depositing funds and having your 'lucky' stubs placed in the barrel before the day of the event.
