(Kelly Ainsworth photos) By Kelly Ainsworth The Green Mountain Roamers’ 23rd Annual Club Raffle was held on Jan. 21 at the Waterbury American Legion Post 59. Happy hour began at 5:30 and was followed by a buffet-style dinner cooked by the American Legion. Dancing ensued after the raffle. We successfully raised over $6,000 and it was our most attended raffle in several years with an attendance of over 120 people. We moved the raffle back to January from previously holding it in October. The date change was very positively received by the raffle attendees. We sold every one of the 100 tickets available, with the last five being sold at the door to people who already held tickets or to people who came as guests on someone else’s ticket. The volunteers who gathered prizes were Kelly Ainsworth and Treasurer Sophie Pitt. Volunteers who sold buy-back tickets during the raffle were Terri Steele, Jodi Nelson, Jen Lawrence and Ellane Austin. Kelly Ainsworth, Caleb Ainsworth, Tyler Austin, Eric Austin, Sophie Pitt volunteered to help set up for the raffle.
