And the Winner is...

Posted: Monday, Dec 24th, 2012


Warren Jackson, the Historical Society’s Vice President, and FHS cheerleader, Lexy Antoine get ready to announce the winner of the HS’s storage shed raffle.
By Billy Stitz

Last Tuesday night, the Moody County Historical Society drew the name of the person who would be walking away with a brand new shed.

Warren Jackson, the Historical Society’s Vice President, was on hand at the Flandreau boys’ and girls’ basketball games where he and Flandreau cheerleader Lexy Antoine picked the winner.

Antoine reached her hand in the bin of names and pulled out Ardene Boysen of Flandreau. Boysen was not present to claim his prize but has since been informed of his winnings.

Boysen has the option of taking a storage shed or playhouse, both valued around $2,000, or he could accept a $1,500 cash option. There is no expiration date on his prize and he can claim it at anytime.

The raffle, which the Historical Society was using as a fundraising event, started in May and consisted of 400 available tickets sold at $20.00 a piece. The Museum estimates that they sold about three-fourths of those available tickets.

The shed and playhouse were always an option but the Historical Society did not add the cash option until late into 2012 after finding that some interested parties are from out of town and would not want to ship the shed to their location and would instead rather have a cash option. The Historical Society plans on having a cash option right off the bat for their 2013 raffle, which should be available to purchase by the middle of next year.

A name was also drawn for a one-year membership to the society. Judy Jones of Flandreau was the winner.
