Ways & Means / Lottery

Currently Vacant



  • Brenda Smith

For this coming season we will be going back to the Lottery Calendars we had a few years ago, with the New York State Lottery Evening (Daily) Number. We are selling them at $20. If your number is exact, the payout is $25. If your number is one below or above, the payout is $5 going to you and $5 to the seller. These make great stocking stuffers and gifts for friends and family. We were able to sell $380.00 at convention this year; a great start! For more information or to purchase, please see Virginia or Ann Paddock
