Contest Winners Announced



Contest Winners Announced

It took a bit longer than we expected (the mail was rather slow moving in both directions), but the results are in for our 55th Anniversary Subscriber Contest. 

A total of 749 entries were received by way of new and renewing subscriptions in the month of October (and a bit into November; did we mention the mail was moving slowly?), and from those entries we did a random selection of 55 names [that's a 1 in 14 chance of winning!], then a random, blind assignment of names to prizes. The grand prize winner of the Kindle e-Reader is Lydia Daugherty! Congratulations Lydia and to all 54 other winners, who are listed below.

In all, over $1200 in prizes are being sent out this week. And we extend a special thanks to the companies who generously donated prizes to this give-away. Be sure to follow the links below to see what other things they have on offer.
