Win a Classic!
Pres. Paul Cotton reports that the winner of this year's raffle motorcycle is Skip Waelty, N. Reading, Massachusetts, ticket #3338. He purchased the ticket from Immediate Past Pres. Warren Mitchell around 12:30p the day of the drawing. He is still deciding whether to take the Harley or the cash. Special thanx to Meredith Kiwanis and Sheriff Dan Collis for helping out with sales before the drawing.
